The New Indian Express
23 killed in MP train mishap
Twenty-three passengers were killed and over 50 injured when a goods train rammed into the stationary Indore-Gwalior Intercity Express at Badarwas station in Shivpuri district early on Monday.
The mishap occurred between Guna and Shivpuri around 4.45 am when the driver of the goods train overshot the home signal and jumped out on finding the passenger train on the same track.
Goods train driver Mukesh Bharadwaj and assistant driver Mahesh Meena, both from Jhanshi division of the railways, have been suspended. Both are at large.
According to one version, the driver of the passenger train, Manjul Sirothia, was safe because he was standing outside while railway authorities said he jumped out when he saw the goods train coming.
Authorities admitted that there were complaints that station master Rajendra Tarare was in the habit of consuming alcohol but claimed he was not drunk when the mishap took place. They denied knowledge of recovery of empty liquor bottles from Tarare’s cabin, as shown repeatedly by local channels. No action has been taken against him so far.
