Aftermath of the train crash:

Ashwini Vaishnaw, the minister of railways, made the announcement of a probe but provided no other information. The Railway Ministry of India has advised that the nation’s top investigative agency look into the fatal accident. Preliminary indications from investigations done by the railways indicate that the collision was caused by a signal malfunction. The three-train crash on Friday evening has been called the deadliest rail tragedy in India in the last 100 years.

More than a thousand people were injured and brought to hospitals. Some families are still looking for missing members. It’s unclear why, given that other investigations have already gotten underway, the Central Bureau of inquiry (CBI), the ministry’s main decision-making body, has recommended opening a separate inquiry. The CBI looks into high-profile crimes, such as heinous financial frauds and homicides.

On Sunday, Mr. Vaishnaw said that the masterminds of the “criminal act” and “the root cause” of the tragedy had been found. He continued by stating that the tragedy was probably caused by a “change in electronic interlocking.” The minister advised to wait until the final report. He stated that the cause would be revealed in a report by the Commissioner of Railway Safety that would shortly be made public.

The Coromandel Express’ engine and carriages collided with a goods train on Sunday, according to the railroads, who also claimed that a signal problem and a “change in electronic interlocking” were to blame. To ensure the secure passage of trains along the track, the electronic interlocking system in railway signalling establishes routes for each train in a specific area. 

The Coromandel Express coaches were thrown onto a third track by the impact of the clash, where they collided with the back coaches of the Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast Express as it was speeding down the line. The two passenger trains are believed to have carried more than 3,000 passengers.
