At least 32 people have been killed in latest Indian rail disaster (‘Maoist sabotage probed in train crash’, Gulf News, January 23). In recent months, a few accidents have been happening on Indian railways. Despite so many safety precautions, accidents are happening due to error and terror. This incident happened in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and it’s suspected to have been orchestrated by Maoists hands. However, the investigation is on. Passengers’ safety and preventive measures are more important today. Travel has become a tough choice today either by road, rail or air. Indian railways should be more alert and make travel more comfortable and safe. I pray for the victims and the grieving family members.
