Fixing responsibility of such a accident is serious a serious activity. It can never be fixed before reading and analysing the final report of the expert committee formed to probe into the accident. If the question is who is the most probable culprit it is possible to give an answer.
Prima facie, the officer who ignored the report of the driver and did not bothered to get the train inspected even at Orai where the train had a 5 minute scheduled stop (between the accident spot and Jhansi), and instead preferred to sleep comfortably at night and asked the LP to go ahead (at full speed) till Kanpur (200kms away) appears to be main culprit.

In all probability and according to news reports there were faulty wheels and wheel clattering in atleast one of the coaches which translates to poor maintenance by WR ...maybe that wheel got jammed and slipped off the tracks and other coaches followed..there is evidence as the LP said to jhs controllers of increased load (due to jamming) but they said to take the train to CNB...maybe they dont have wheel changing facility there...the RM nd DRM should take the moral responsibility that it cannot convince its staff to work with full dedication which led to poor maintenance leading to the accident
