KHATAULI, UTTAR PRADESH: As investigations begin into Saturday’s train tragedy in Uttar Pradesh that killed 20 people and injured over 90, a senior railway official today said that maintenance work was being carried out on the track which could have caused the Puri-Haridwar Utkal Express to derail. Thirteen coaches of the high-speed train went off the tracks around 5:45 pm in Khatauli in Muzaffarnagar district; two crashed into a residential area, ramming a house and a college. Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu, who has ordered an inquiry into the incident, said he had asked authorities “to fix responsibility on prima facie evidence by end of day”.
