Almost a hundred people have died and about 150 have been injured on Sunday in a train crash by derailing several train cars in which they traveled in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India. The accident took place in the early morning near the town of Pukhrayan. The figures of fatalities that have provided different police sources range between 90 and 96. "There are 14 wagons affected by the accident," said Anil Shekhawat, spokesman for the National Disaster Response Force on the scene. A spokesman for the North and Central areas of the Indian Railways Network, R.D.Bajpayee, told Efe that "the causes of the accident have not yet been determined," while rescue services are working against the clock in the area of ​​the incident. Indian Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said in his Twitter account that mobile medical units were immediately moved to the crash site and all the wounded have been taken to the nearest hospitals. "The most forceful actions within the legal framework will be carried out against those responsible for the accident," Prabhu said. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a message on the social network Twitter that his prayers are with those wounded in the "tragic accident" for his early recovery and said he maintains direct contact with the Minister of Railways. The Indian rail network is 65,000 kilometers long, the fourth longest in the world, behind the United States, Russia and China. It has 1.3 million employees and 12,500 trains and carries about 23 million passengers daily. But although 80% was built by the British during the colonial period, much of the sector's funds have so far been invested in maintaining the obsolete layout. According to a study released by the Ministry of Railways, investment in safety is key in the Indian railway system, where in the last decade there have been 1,522 accidents in which 2,331 people have died.
