According to media reports, Prime Minister Imran Khan telephoned Federal Minister of Railways Sheikh Rasheed, in which Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed deep regret and sorrow over the loss of 74 lives in the train accident and sought full details of the accident.
On the other hand, Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed, while talking to the media, said that in Tezgam accident, it is not the fault of the railway but people do not respect the law. Sheikh Rasheed, while blaming the passengers on the incident, said that it was not the railways but the passengers’ fault.
The passengers ignited the cylinder to make breakfast after which the moving train caught fire. The scanner system is not available at the smaller stations, so we will investigate whether the passengers carry cylinders from the station to the train.
