Air India cancels train, train-hail services for Army cadets

The Air India train and bus services for the Army cadet corps were cancelled on Monday due to an incident involving a man who died of asphyxiation at a military training camp.

The Air India spokesperson said that the incident occurred in a military camp in the state of Maharashtra.

The statement came on the same day that an Air India passenger died of hypothermia in Maharashtra after he tried to jump off the platform at the train station there, the official said.

Air India is a national carrier and a popular transport option for cadets in the country.

Air India operates over two million trains a year and a whopping 7,000 buses for its cadets.
