Sunday's train disaster could have been caused due to rail fracture, Union minister of state for railways Manoj Sinha said. “A high-level probe has already been ordered and we will take strict action,“ he told reporters at the accident site.
“The engineers and experts will probe the cause of the accident, but it appears there was a rail fracture,“ he added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a host of VIPs mourned the deaths. Modi announced ex-gratia of Rs 2 lakh for the next of kin of each of those killed and Rs 50,000
for each of the seriously injured.
According to officials, 14 coaches of the Indore-Patna express derailed just after 3 am near Pukhrayan station, about 60 km from Kanpur city, killing more than 100 passengers and leaving 150 injured.

Two times in every year I travell by this route from Mumbai to kanpur via jhansi ,I hv experience the track between jhansi and kanpur are good ,only 20 to 30 train passes daily by this route hence it is maintained very well.the cause of accident I believe is 2 reason
1. improper maintenance and ignorance of coach by rail authority .every time the wheel should b checked while resting
2. Overcrowding of passengers especially in general coach which gives lot jerk on the the track
In the past there has been no accident in this route .
Capacity of general biggie is 90 to 100 but generally there 150 to 180 ppl .on an average almost 4500kg weight is extra.
The only way to curb such situation is railway shd start more jansadharan train on busy route and it Shud b at least tri-weekly.
