49 killed, 150 injured as express trains collide

Kolkata: At least 49 people were killed and over 150 injured when a speeding Sealdah-bound Uttarbanga Express rammed into the Vanachal Express pulling out of the Sainthia station in Birbhum district early today.

The Uttarbanga Express, which rammed into the rear of Vananchal Express, seemed to be running at a much higher speed than it was supposed to while entering the Sainthia station.

IMO: Sabotage cannot therefore be ruled out.

Eastern Rly GM say "Nothing can be ruled out. Ho sakta hai hamara equipment se chherchhar hui ho. Ye sab janch ke bad pata chalega (It may be possible that our equipment might have been tampered with. It will be known only after inquiry)."
