Special train leaves Kolkata for train accident siteJuly 10th, 2011 - 10:02 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, Jul 10 (IANS) A special train with relatives of passengers of Kalka-bound Kalka Mail, which ran off the rails in Uttar Pradesh, left Howrah Sunday evening for the accident site, an official said.
“A special train left Howrah station at around 8.15 p.m. with relatives of passengers of Kalka Mail to carry them to the accident site,” Samir Goswami, chief public relations officer of the Eastern Railway, told IANS.
At least 35 people were killed and more than 150 injured Sunday when 14 coaches of the Kalka Mail derailed at Malwa station in Fatehpur, about 150 km from Lucknow, leaving many passengers trapped in the mangled mess.
Due to the congestion on the line after the accident, two Delhi-bound trains –Howrah-Delhi Janata Express and Kolkata-Delhi Lal Qila Express — were cancelled, Goswami said.
