કીમમાં માલગાડી ડેન્જર સિગ્નલ ક્રોસ કરી ગઈ
આગળ વધેલી માલગાડી રેલવેના સાઈડિંગ ટ્રેક પરથી ઉતરી પડતાં માંડ બે ફૂટ રહી ગઈ
ગંભીર બેદરકારી બદલ ડ્રાઈવર અને ગાર્ડ સામે મેડિકલ ચેકઅપ સહિ‌તના પગલાં લેવાયા
રેલવે સત્તાધિશોએ ઘટનાસ્થળે આી આખી માલગાડી ચેક કરી આગળ રવાના કરાઈ
કીમ: કીમ રેલવે સ્ટેશને માલગાડીના ડ્રાઈવરે પોતાને ભૂલથી સિગ્નલ મળ્યો હોવાનું કે અન્ય કોઈક કારણે ગફલત થતાં ડ્રાઈવરે સાઈડિંગમાં ઊભી રાખેલી ટ્રેનને ચાલુ કરી દીધી હતી. તેની સાથે ટ્રેન ડેન્જર સિગ્નલ વટાવી ગઈ હતી. જો કે ડ્રાઈવરને તરત ખ્યાલ આવી જતાં તેણે ટ્રેનને થોભાવી દીધી હતી. આ કારણે માલગાડી પાટા ઉપરથી ઉતરી પડતાં માંડ માંડ એક- બે ફૂટના અંતરે બચી ગઈ હતી. જોકે, ડ્રાઈવર, ગાર્ડની ભૂલને લીધે રેલવેના ઉચ્ચ અધિકારીઓએ

તેઓને ડેન્ઝર સિગ્નલ પસાર કરવાના અને રેલવેના ગંભીર ગણાતા ઘટનામાં કાયદેસર કાર્યવાહી કરવાનો પ્રારંભ કરી દીધો છે. આ સાથે ડ્રાઈવર અને ગાર્ડને મેડિકલ ચેકઅપ માટે વડોદરા મોકલી આપવામાં આવ્યા હતાં.
કીમ રેલવે સ્ટેશને મંગળવારે મળસકે (ડબ્લ્યુએજી-૯ એચ -૩૧૪૬૪) અજની નામની માલગાડી કીમ સ્ટેશને સાઈડિંગ ટ્રેક ઉપર ઊભી રહી હતી. દરમિયાન સાઈડિંગમાં ઉભી રહેલી માલગાડીના ડ્રાઈવરને સિગ્નલ પોતાને મળ્યો હોવાનું જાણી તેણે માલગાડી હંકારવાનો પ્રારંભ કરી દીધો હતો, પરંતુ થોડી ક્ષણ બાદ તેણે એકાએક સિગ્નલ પર ફરી નજર કરતાં આ સિગ્નલ તેની માલગાડી માટે નહીં, પરંતુ મેઈન લાઈન પર જતી કોઈક ટ્રેન માટે હોવાનો ખ્યાલ આવી ગયો હતો, આથી તેણે આગળ જોતા તે સીધો સાઈડિંગ લાઈન પર જ હંકારી રહ્યો હોવાનું જાણતાં જ ટ્રેન થોભાવી દીધી હતી. ત્યાં સુધીમાં ઘણું મોડું થઈ ગયું હતું.
આ માલગાડી રેલવે ટ્રેક પરથી ઉતરતા માંડ એક- બે ફૂટના અંતર જ બાકી રહ્યું હતું. જો આગળ ટ્રેન ગઈ હોત તો પૂર્ણ થતાં ટ્રેક પરથી નીચે ઉતરી જવાની સંભાવના હતી. આ ઘટના સાથે રેલવેને મોટું નુકસાન ડ્રાઈવરની ભૂલને કારણે ભોગવવું પડયું હોત. પરંતુ માલગાડી ઊભી રહી જતાં મોટું નુકસાન થયું ન હતું. પરંતુ ત્યાં સુધીમાં તો ડ્રાઈવરે ચાલુ કરેલી ગાડી ડેન્જર સિગ્નલ ક્રોસ કરી ૯૦ મીટર દૂર સુધી પહોંચી ગઈ હતી. રેલવે સત્તાવાળાઓ ઘટના સ્થળે આવી માલગાડીને ચેક કરી યોગ્ય કામગીરી બાદ મોડી સાંજે આગળ રવાના કરાઈ હતી. તેમ જાણવા મળેલ છે.
મેઈન ટ્રેક પર માલગાડી જતી રહે તો...
માલગાડીના ડ્રાઈવરે પોતાને સિગ્નલ મળ્યો છે, તેમ સમજી માલગાડી તો હંકારી પણ બાદમાં જાણ થતા તેણે સાઈડિંગ પર આગળ ટ્રેનને ટ્રેક પૂર્ણ થવાના એકાદ બે ફૂટ બાકી હોય ત્યારે થોભાવી દીધી હતી. આ સમયે મેઈન લાઈન પર સિગ્નલ મળતાં આવી રહેલી ટ્રેન સાથે કોઈ અકસ્માત પણ બનાવાની શક્યતા ઊભી થતી હતી, પરંતુ સ્થાનિક સ્ટેશન કંટ્રોલર દ્વારા ટ્રેક બદલાયો ન હોવાથી માલગાડી મેઈન લાઈન પર પહોંચી ન હતી. આથી મોટી દુર્ઘટના ટળી હતી.

A strong mob of over 5,000 villagers had assembled at the site and were angrily looking for the gateman who was supposed to shut the crossing for the train to pass. The gateman as well as Semra station master were absconding. The mob also cut the hose pipes of the train that came to a halt after the accident. Its loco pilot was pelted with stones. The situation was brought under control following arrival of the police. However, the movement of trains on the route could be restored only around 8pm.

मोतिहारी
बिहार के मोतिहारी में शाम करीब 4 बजे रेलवे क्रॉसिंग पर एक ऑटो रिक्शा की ट्रेन से टक्कर हो गई। इस दुर्घटना में 17 लोगों की मौत की खबर है। 2-3 लोग घायल हैं और उन्हें स्थानीय अस्पताल में भर्ती कराया गया है।
जानकारी के मुताबिक मोतिहारी के पास यह विक्रम ऑटो रिक्शा मानवरहित रेलवे क्रॉसिंग पार करने की कोशिश कर रहा था, तभी राप्ती गंगा एक्सप्रेस आ गई और उसने ऑटो को टक्कर मार दी। इस इलाके में कोई मेला चल रहा था और इसी वजह से बिक्रम ऑटो रिक्शा में क्षमता से अधिक लोग सवार थे।
