Death toll in derailment of Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar-Hirakhand Express rises to 41


The death toll in the derailment of Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar-Hirakhand Express has gone up to 41. More than 115 people were injured in the accident which occured near Kuneru station in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh when the train was going to Bhubaneswar.Rescue and relief operations are underway.

Central and State government rescue and relief teams are participating in the operations. Teams of NDRF, Auxiliary Relief Medical Vans, Accident Relief train, RPF personnel are also emgaged in the rescue operations. The injured have been shifted to nearby hospitals. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu who visited the accident spot yesterday informed the media that a third party inquiry will be initiated to ascertain the cause of the incident. He also said that stringent action will be taken against the culprits.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu also ordered for CID enquiry into the incident with the railways suspecting foul play in the mishap and tampering of the track near Kuneru station. East Coast Railway Bhubaneswar Division General Manager Umesh Singh confirmed that Hirakhand Express derailment is the biggest tragedy happened under the division. A narrow gap that disconnected the rail line was suspected to have led the train to jump off the track tossing up a few boggies to roll over to the adjacent track. The dislocation of the rail line, however, remains to be a mystery.

The 15-inch gap on the track was found to be the cause for the accident according to Waltair divisional railway manager Chandralekha Mukherjee. She said, sabotage cannot be ruled out as prima facie evidence suggests that the track was found to be intact until a few minutes before the mishap. She said the commissioner of railway safety will hold an inquiry to zero in on the exact cause for the accident, further adding that the Railways main focus right now is extending relief to the victims and restoration of traffic on the route at the earliest as some mangled bogies are yet to be removed from the tracks. The railways will conduct an inquiry today and tomorrow on the possible cause of the accident.
