60 Dead After Train Runs Over Crowd in India
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:19:19 AM »

A speeding train ran over members of a crowd watching fireworks during a religious festival in northern India on Friday, killing at least 60 people and injuring dozens more, police said.

The accident occurred on the outskirts of Amritsar, a city in Punjab state that is 465 kilometers (290 miles) north of New Delhi.

Police Commissioner S.S. Srivastava said police had found 60 bodies so far. Thirty bodies had been removed from the site by Friday evening.

At least 50 injured were admitted to a government-run hospital, the Press Trust of India news agency quoted Rajesh Sharma, a magistrate, as saying.

There was no railroad ministry statement on the accident.

Hundreds of people were watching the burning of an effigy of demon Ravana during the Hindu festival of Dussehra. As the effigy was lit and the fireworks started at the religious function, a section of the crowd started retreating toward railroad tracks while watching the event.
