Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 26,Nov 16,oo many accidents
This is one of the worst train accidents that India has witnessed in a long time, which makes this Gulf News report a sad and painful read (‘India train derails, death toll crosses 142’, Gulf News, November 21). The Indian railway should do a probe into the real reasons for this mishap and punish the guilty severely. On one hand, the railway authorities are increasing the number of routes and modernising the bogeys, but on the other hand, accidents are increasing and this is really worrying. Periodical check-ups on lines and other parts of trains should be monitored to avert the mishaps to a certain extent. Passenger safety is most important. I pray for the victims and a speedy recovery for injured.
