Following the worst train accident in six years which left 143 passengers dead, the Railways promised “strictest possible action“ against those found guilty .
While an inquiry by the commissioner of railway safety has already been ordered, the state-run transporter announced a thorough investigation with the aid of latest technical and forensic analysis into Sunday's train accident.
Making a statement in the Lok Sabha amid noisy protests by opposition members over demonetisation, railway minister Suresh Prabhu said the exercise to replace old coaches lacking crashworthy features would be expedited. “I had informed this
House during the previous rail budget that such coaches will be progressively replaced and phased out. This will be expedited,“ he said.
“There shall be a separate, comprehensive investigation aided by latest technical and forensic analysis by an appropriate agency to look into all possible angles.Strictest possible action would be taken against the guilty ,“ he said.
Giving details of the Railways' relief and rescue operation, the minister said old technology coaches in operation lacked crashworthy characteristics of modern coaches.
Prabhu also gave details of the rescue operation. He along with Railway Board chairman visited the spot and interacted with the injured.
TOI had highlighted on Sunday that despite recommendation of the Kakodkar panel on railway safety in 2012, the transporter failed to switch over to modern Linke Hoffman Busch coaches from the old Integral Coach Factory designed ones.

Moreover all the under production old type coupling and spares have to be stopped at once for the passengers safety.
