'This is not a rare incident', Cause of train accident in India still unknown : India

According to 55-year-old passenger Koshida Das, who lost her daughter in the train accident, sounds like Diwali crackers came from the train at the time of the accident and the trains collided.

Distraught relatives are still busy searching for their loved ones who have gone missing on Friday evening after the train accident near Balasore district in India's eastern state of Odisha.

According to the news agency AFP, the authorities are looking for the reasons for the accident that happened to the trains, while the number of people who lost their lives in the accident has reached at least 288.

There is a high pile of debris at the site of the accident. As a result of the accident, the carriages of the trains have been broken and the bloody wreckage of some of the carriages is lying far from the tracks.

According to an eyewitness named Abdul Mokhtar, 'People were shouting a lot. They were shouting that brother, save me, save me. Give me some water. A lot of people were driving. Various human organs were scattered. This is not an uncommon occurrence.'

27-year-old Anubhudas, a researcher who was unhurt in the accident, said, 'I saw bloody scenes. The bodies were mutilated and one man whose arm was amputated, his injured son was busy helping him.'

According to the Reuters news agency, 55-year-old passenger Koshida Das, who lost her daughter in the train accident, said: 'At the time of the accident, sounds like Diwali firecrackers came from the train. A train collided with another train. We were wondering what happened to make such a loud noise. We started swinging, me and my daughter started swinging together and after a while there was a loud noise and the bogies started overturning and falling down.'

"We kept rolling," he added. My daughter got stuck there and my daughter was crushed under the heavy piece of iron in front of my eyes. I managed to stand in a corner but I got hit on the head with an iron rod or something.'

According to him, 'I thought how to get my daughter out from under the piece of iron but I did not know how to move such a heavy iron. My daughter cried and died before my eyes.'

There is confusion over the exact sequence of events, but reports quoted railway officials as saying that due to a signal fault, the Coromandel Express, a train traveling south from Kolkata to Chennai, was diverted to the next track.

The train collided with a freight train and the debris caused it to derail the northbound express train from Bengaluru, India's technology hub, which was passing through the area at the time.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the accident site and visited the injured passengers in hospital. On this occasion, he said that 'no one responsible for the accident will be spared.'

Speaking to the state broadcaster Doordarshan, the Prime Minister said: 'I pray that we come out of this sad hour as soon as possible.'

A high school near the accident site was converted into a makeshift morgue. "Many of the bodies were so mutilated that many distraught families could only identify their loved ones by pieces of jewelry," officials said.

Ranajit Naik, the police officer responsible for handing over the bodies to the people, said, "There were some bodies with some remains of the body."

Many bodies were being moved to larger centers in the scorching heat. Some bodies will be identified only through DNA tests, officials said.

 Researcher Anubhu Das further said that he was in the last carriage of the train. They heard a horrible screeching sound coming from a distance. Their bogie is not upside down and when it stops, they get out of it and are thus safe.

Das said that 'I was not able to count the bodies until I left the accident site. Now I realize my mistake.'

People near the accident site rushed to help the injured passengers even before the emergency services.

According to eyewitness 20-year-old Haranmay Rath, in the next few hours, he saw more deaths and pain than he could imagine.

Officials said victims of the accident were rushed to every hospital in a distance of about 200 kilometers (125 miles) between the crash site and the state capital Bhubaneswar. About 200 ambulances and even buses were used to transport them.

Rescue operations were announced on Saturday evening as emergency crews began searching for people in the wreckage. The bodies were placed near the tracks and white sheets were placed over them.
