On Tuesday, June 6, a 10-member CBI team reached the site of the Balasore train accident involving a goods train, the Yashwantpur-Howrah Express, and the Coromandel-Chennai Express. The CBI team reached ground zero to assess the ground reality and investigate the massive accident. The horrific mishap claimed 275 lives and more than 1000 have been injured, who are being treated in various hospitals across Balasore, Cuttack, and Bhubaneswar.

Talking to the media, Aditya Kumar Chaudhary, CPRO, South Eastern Railway, said, “See, the CBI does its work discreetly, and they are doing their job silently, looking into various locations, and collecting evidences. Both the CRS and the CBI are working in coordination, helping each other. Proper assistance is being provided by the Railways as well”.

“The investigators want the evidences to be secured, so you can see that we have secured all the coaches, the damages rails, and the sleepers, and have kept them separately, so that the evidences are not tampered with. All the files, machines, and readings have also been sealed. They will be handed over to the CBI and the CRS”, added Chaudhary.

It was on Sunday that the Railway Board had recommended a CBI probe into the train accident, and now, an FIR has been registered in the Balasore Railway police station against unknown persons, under relevant sections of the IPC.
