Vananchal - Uttarbang Express Accident - Flashback

Just a couple of days ago, a vital accident between two trains took place. The two trains which got involved were Vananchal express and Uttarbang express. Kindly read the article to know more about Vananchal express - Uttarband Express accident.

Even train journeys have become too dangerous now. According to a report, nearly 250 passengers had died in train accidents this year i.e January 1, 2010 to July 20, 2010.This record shows that railway system is not on track. Day before yesterday's accident clearly proved it.

Recent one is from West Bengal and that train also enters Jharkhand. On Monday at 2am, a train named Vananchal express was standing on platform no 4 in Sainthiya station of birbhum district and another express train named Uttarbang express hit it. This accident killed nearly 61 people and 100 were injured.

This was so much disastrous that three general class compartments were badly damaged. One of compartment struck the over bridge.

Vananchal express was on platform no 4 and Uttarbang express was also instructed to come on platform no 4.this clearly shows that there was a technical mistake. The question arises how control room instructed Uttarbang express to come on platform no 8 if Vananchal express was there? In a country which has one of the largest railway networks, these mistakes cost, and cost a lot.

Railway ministry has announced to give Rs. 5,00,000 and employment to one family member of killed ones and Rs. 1,00,000 to seriously injured and Rs. 25,000 to injured ones. West Bengal government has announced to give Rs. 3,00,000 to family members of killed passengers.

But this money cannot lower the fear of train journey that is embedding in the minds of people. Railway is one of the major sources of revenue for the govt. Everyday millions of people travel by train to go to their destination but if train accidents go on in this pace, surely many will quit!

Many investigations said that the Vananchal Express – Uttarbang Express was caused by the wrongness of the driver of the train that he did not see the signal. However, also, some people say that the signaler had made the mistake in not showing the signal at the right time. Whatever be it, lives cannot be replenished now.
