58 dead as train mows into crowd watching Ravan burn in Amritsar
AMRITSAR: It turned out to be a dark Dussehra as 58 people lost their lives in less than a minute, in a most horrific and bizarre train accident. A train at full speed tore through revellers who had been pushed back about 100 feet from the periphery of a burning effigy of Ravan.
The men, women and children moved back onto the railway tracks. In the shadow of flames and crackle of explosions, none saw or heard the whistle of the rapidly approaching train. Death was immediate.
The railway track are installed for train to move not people standing on tracks . They have the right of way , sorry that this tragedy happened but railway is not at fault. People can see this big fast moving train but the driver can’t see a crowd from a distance and brake. Stop blaming game and think with sense , pray for the dead and learn valuable lesson.
Though its a grave tragedy but people lost lives due to their own negligence. Why were they standing on railway tracks???
What people were expecting standing on Live Rail Track??? Sad but indians always neglect safety issues.
Why headline is train moved into people????? How train can fuucking move into people unless people were standing in the way of train on train track !!!!
In this age of religious madness the question should asked is why was Hanuman not there to lift the train? He can lift islands but not a train?. The answer is that religion is made up by ancient people who sought to explain what they did not understand. Give up religion and the world will be a much more peaceful place.
We are too weak in learning lessons, an incident of the exact nature happened in Kerala in the past with even more death
See the callousness and indifferent attitude of the state government. Even after the horrific tragedy people are seen standing on tracks and posing for selfies. And not a single policemen is seen in the photo to control / chase away these stupid people.

the organisers of this should be charged with murder...
I disagree with head line! Train didn't mow the crowd !People were not following safety rules.
The average IQ of India is 82. It is the lowest in Asia (barring Nepal and Qatar) and among the lowest in the world. Only a few African countries have average IQ lower than India. And you expect these people to make India a superpower?
