is not immediately known what exactly caused the accident, but railways sources said that the railway track is in dilapidated condition at several places in the Sukkur division.

Pakistan has a shoddy record when it comes to accidents involving trains. In the past decade, the country witnessed a number of deadly train accidents, and they seem to have increased in frequency over the past few years.
In February, last year, at least 19 people died when a train collided with a passenger bus near Rohri – also in the Sukkur division.
In October, 2019 more than 70 people died in a fiery explosion on a moving train near Rahim Yar Khan, Punjab.
