The second accident happened when the Quetta-bound Akbar
Express collided with the stationary freight train at the Walhar Railway
Station in Sadiqabad Tehsil of the province, Dawn quoted officials as saying.
The freight train was on the loop line when the speeding
passenger train instead of running on the main line entered the wrong track.
In a tweet, Prime Minister Khan said he has asked Railways
Minister to take emergency steps to counter decades of neglect of railway
infrastructure and ensure safety standards.
Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has ordered an
investigation into the accident.
He announced compensation of Rs 15 lakh for the families of the deceased and Rs 5 lakh each for the injured, Dawn reported. PTI
