The casualties were massive and around 150 people were killed and over 200 were injured. And now, right on the musky dawn of the new years, another accident made its way in 2016.

The Sealdah-Ajmer Express (12987) was derailed this morning at around 6am in Rura near Kanpur. As many as 13 bogies derailed and fell into a Canal leaving so many injured.

Something on the similar lines happened on November 20 as well that ended up killing 146 people in the same area. This raises tons of questions regarding the safety of Indian railways.

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has vowed to replace all the old tracks and install security gauges but no one has any idea as to when exactly will that happen.
