As per source’s report, the deceased has been identified as a retired electrician of Indian Railways named Shivdayal Sharma.
The man retired from the organization 23 years ago. As per the retired railway employee's relative the incident occurred after the Vande Bharat Express departed from Kali Mori gate around 8:30 am and collided with a cow.
Because of the high-speed impact of the train, the cow was thrown 30 meters away over Shivdayal. The weight of the cow with the impact ended up claiming the man's life.

This is not the first time the Vande Bharat train has been involved in an accident with a cattle.
Previously, there have been multiple incidents where the train got in an accident which ended up killing cattle and damaging the train.
The Mumbai-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Express has suffered the most damage because of accidents with cattles.
The train on this route got into an accident within days of its launch. Furthermore, the situation worsened as the train suffered 2 more accidents on the same route within days.
These incidents ended up damaging the front apron of the train along with a few vital parts.
To avoid such incidents in the future, Western Railways started an initiative to put fences on the railway tracks on this route.
The arm of the Indian Railways was supposed to cover a distance of 620 km between Mumbai and Ahmedabad to prevent the animals from getting in the train's way.
