Maharashtra: Train runs over migrant workers in Aurangabad, 14 dead
AURANGABAD: At least 14 migrant workers who were slee on the railway tracks were mowed down by a goods train carrying petrol and diesel from Nanded to Manmad, at Gadhejalgaon village in Maharashtra's Aurangabad district on Friday morning.
Five of them escaped with injuries and they have been rushed to a hospital.
The accident took place at around 5.30am. Sources informed that these migrant workers were working for a major steel plant in the neighbouring district of Jalna.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed grief over the tragic accident.
Extremely anguished by the loss of lives due to the rail accident in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Have spoken to Railway Minister Shri Piyush Goyal and he is closely mon oring the situation. All possible assistance required is being provided.
An accident happened near Karmad, Aurangabad when an empty rake of goods wagon ran over some people. RPF and local police are reaching spot to asses the situation. More details awaited, said chief public relations officer
With an intention to reach Aurangabad railway station, which on Thursday flagged off a train to Madhya Pradesh, for boarding trains to their hometown in northern states of India, they started walking from Jalna, which is 65km from here. So as to avoid getting zeroed by the police on the highways, these migrant workers opted for the railway tracks heading Aurangabad.
After walking for several kilometres, they decided to take rest on the railway tracks between Satana and Karmad, before resuming their journey on Friday morning.
With no place to go, all of them slept on the railway tracks. On learning about the in dent, Aurangabad rural superintendent of police Mokshada Patil, Railway Prection Force teams from Aurangabad and police teams from Karmad police station rushed to the spot.
Citing the call received by the Aurangabad city police control room, deputy commissioner of police (headquarter) Meena Makwana said, "Aurangabad railway station manager Ashok Nikam informed the police control room that 10 to 15 migrant labourers that were slee on the railway tracks have been run over by a goods train carrying petrol – diesel, and heading Manmad from Nanded".

How could these people sleep on Railway Track?? Train driver should not be blamed in this scenario.
Trains run on fixed rails and people may be crossing or slee and you can't blame train !!
Train driver should not be balmed

A train is not a car which would stop in a second even if he had saw and pushed break lever it wouldn't have been able to stop or save any1 of them
How do people sleep on railway track? Is it comfortable to sleep? Something fishy. Is it not poverty stricken family members commit to end their lives due to starving? More clarity needed.
It's probably mass sucide. Probably they had nothing to it. Nobody can sleep on railway tracks.

Tragedy after tragedy in this nation - is hte only news .How they slep on railways tracks -can not understand !
Kindly dont blame the railways for the in dent. Who sleeps on rail tracks, crazy people. Or was it they commited suicides.
Now who asked them to walk on railway track. Forget walking, who asked them to sleep on tracks. Were they crazy to sleep there?
people have to sleep on track and die.. walk thousand of kilometres to reach home without food and die..
It looks like suicide. How can they sleep on tracks and not hear the train?
No body sleeps on railway tracks. How is it even possible to sleep on railway tracks. Don't publish rubbish.
After all this is not the mistake of Engine Driver. Illiterate people slept on the track is a grave mistake. Okay they are fearing the police on Highway. But they could have slept some safer place.
Have sympathy for them but then its suicidal to sleep on railway tracks. They are themselves to be blamed for this.
Bloody gt not caring about poor migrants.
There is plenty of open space besides a railway track to do whatever the hell you want. Then why on earth these workers decided to sleep on railway tracks? And that too with children? Sometimes I am really amused at the lack of common sense and stupidity of us Indians.
looks like they got very tired of walking and fall a deep sleep... RIP
Who sleeps on a train track? Even illiterates would have enough common sense. These people have committed suicide
That is problem with Indian poor. They are not just poor but they lack basic common sense also.
Not even Maharashtra Gt responsible. These are stupid people. Not even God can help.
Sad in dent.... but railway tracks are not meant for slee. Please don't blame the poor railway engine driver....
Starting from 2008 Mumbai Attack, Modi has used every national tragedy to r po itical benefits.. Somehow or other, he always finds a way.. He has mastered the art
This is the result of unplanned lockdown and not facilitating migrant workers to be sent to their native village. State goverment and Central gt both are responsible for this tragedy. Poor people are mostly affected due to this lockdown. Rich people are enjoying as lockdown is like holiday time for them.
This is absolute ignorance. Why on earth would they sleep on railway tracks?
Such a tragedy! The nation needs to address population explosion!
it is their suicidal mistake, what can Gt do in it.
