INDORE: While the railways claimed that around 1,200 people were on board, railway sources claimed that the number of passengers were much more that. Sources claimed that hundreds of passengers on the train were travelling either without ticket or with general ticket which the railways figures do not show.
"The number of such people could have been even around 500 which is almost half the capacity of the train," a railway official said on the condition of anonymity.
One such case is of Raja Ram who is searching for his sister-in-law at Indore

railway station on Sunday. While he knew that she had boarded the train on Saturday, he was not sure about the coach in which she was travelling. Reason, she had a waiting list ticket.
"She was travelling on a ticket with waiting list 296, I left her on one of the coaches, I have no idea if she was in the coach with fatalities," Raja said crying.
Raja is not the only one whose kin were on board unauthorized tickets. "There are many relatives who have come with enquiries for relatives who were not authorized to travel in the train. This suggests that the number of people travelling were much more than those who got reservation," a railway official at the help desk said.
Vendors of the station also claimed that the crowd on Saturday seemed to be much more as compared to crowds for normal trains. Railway had installed some extra coaches in the train but they not adequate according to the demand.
"There were long queues of people waiting to board the train in the general boogie, they were in much larger number than the coaches could accommodate," a vendor at the station claimed.
Since, this is the only train that connects Patna to Indore and a lot of people of Bihar and UP live in this part of the state, the train usually runs fully occupied.
Railway officials also agreed that the general bogies of the train were usually overcrowded. "A general boogie can generally accommodate 90 people, the crowd in general bogie of these trains are usually on the higher side," a senior official of western railways said.
