In Uttar Pradesh, at least 30 passengers were killed and over 100 passengers injured as the Gorakhpur-bound Gorakhdham Express rammed into a goods train at the Chureb station between Basti and Gorakhpur this morning.

The relief and rescue operation is still going on. Three coaches of Gorakhdham Express were badly crushed while six others were derailed. As per District Magistrate Bharat Lal, both the trains had come on a single track due to error. However, officials in the Railway Board, and also NE Railway’s CPRO Alok Singh, informed that the mishap occurred due to derailment of the express train. They said six coaches of the train then rammed into a stationary goods train standing on the adjoining track at the station.

Out of the six coaches, four were coaches and two were AC coach — AC first class and AC two tier.
