On Wednesday, Ashwini Vaishnaw, the minister of railways, advised the public to wait till the CBI’s initial inquiry was through before learning the cause of the triple train tragedy in Balasore, Odisha, which cost 292 lives. He urged local journalists not to “go by rumours,” saying that the truth needed to surface.
“This is a really delicate subject. We should be aware of the truth. The underlying technical issue ought to be known. Allow the primary CBI investigation to be finished. Following that, we’ll decide what to do next,” Vaishnaw said.
The CBI was requested to conduct an investigation on one of the deadliest accidents in Indian Railways history.
