An aspiring doctor from Scarborough has been killed by a train in Bangladesh.

21-year-old old Jerin Mir was a student at the Medical College for Women & Hospital.

Jerin's uncle told the The Daily Star newspaper she'd come to Bangladesh last year, while her family stayed in Canada.

He says she was taking a walk with a friend near the Cantonment railway station in Dhaka when she was hit around 6:30pm Saturday.

Jerin was pronounced dead in hospital.

Police say they are speaking to her friend to find out exactly what happened.
