अमृतसर रेल हादसे के दौरान लापरवाही बरते के आरोप में समन का सामना कर रही नवजोत सिंह सिद्धू की पत्‍नी नवजोत कौर सिद्धू शुक्रवार को कोर्ट पहुंची. नवजोत कौर सिद्धू अपने साथ नवजोत सिंह सिद्धू की रिटन स्टेटमेंट लेकर स्पेशल एग्जीक्यूटिव मजिस्ट्रेट बी पुरुषार्थ के समन पर अपना जवाब देने के लिए पहुंची हैं.गौरतलब है कि नवजोत कौर सिद्धू लगातार ये कहती रही हैं कि वो हादसे के ठीक पहले आयोजन स्थल से निकल गईं थी. उन्होंने पहले अपने बयान में कहा कि रावण दहन के बाद जब वो आयोजन स्थल से निकल गई तो उसके 15 मिनट बाद उन्हें हादसे के बारे में जानकारी मिली जबकि अपने दूसरे बयान में उन्होंने कहा कि रावण दहन के बाद जैसे ही वो गाड़ी में बैठीं तो उन्हें 1 मिनट बाद हादसे के बारे में पता लगा. लेकिन CCTV की तस्वीरें अलग ही कहानी कह रही है.बता दें कि अमृतसर में दशहरा उत्सव...

HERE FOR LATEST UPDATES ON AMRITSAR TRAIN TRAGEDYEyewitnesses said the crowd spilled onto the tracks when a Ravana effigy was set ablaze and crackers started exploding. While some of them were filming the burning of the effigy, others were trying to save themselves. The Nakodar Jalandhar DMU No. 74943 suddenly approached and they did not get a chance to save themselves.The train was coming from Hoshiarpur to Amritsar via Jalandhar. The bodies were cut into pieces and lay strewn in an area between 100 metres and 150 metres from the tracks.NO NOD FROM RAILWAY AUTHORITIESRailway authorities clarified that the organisers had not taken any permission from them to burn the effigy near the tracks. However, eyewitnesses said the driver despite the presence of the crowd neither sounded a siren nor reduced the speed of the train which was hurtling down at 100 kmph, sources said.Railway authorities said they had no information about the event and the driver had no time to stop the train as people suddenly entered the tracks. However it was also the responsibility of the railway staff that clears tracks and keeps an eye on obstacles, sources said.COPS IGNORED ACCIDENT THREATEven though the exact number of police officials at the venue during the accident is not known, those present were busy providing security to the chief guest of the event Navjot Kaur Sidhu.Police officials and organisers ignored the security of the people, sources said.The event was not organised for the first time. The effigy was being burnt at the same place for quite some time. It was also the responsibility of the local superintendent of the police who deployed police officials to escort the VVIPs, Sidhu, sources said."The effigy was burnt and I had just left the site when the tragedy happened. Priority is to get the injured treated. People who are doing politics over it should be ashamed," they added.Slamming the Sidhus and the local administration, former revenue minister and Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia said that it was a failure of the local administration, the police in particular, which did not barricade the tracks and deploy adequate number of police personnel to stop people from entering the tracks.THERE WAS NO LIGHTING There was no lighting around the tracks. Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has ordered a probe to fix the responsibility of the officers who were supposed to maintain law and order besides security.As the effigy was lit and the fireworks went off, a section of the crowd started retreating towards the tracks where a large number of people were already standing. One account said two trains arrived from the opposite direction at the same time giving little opportunity to people to escape. Several people were mowed down by one of the trains.The Northern Railway CPRO said that due to some incident, people started running towards gate No. 27 between Amritsar and Manawala.Take cognizance of the tragedy, the Punjab government has announced state-wide mourning on Saturday, all educational institutions will remain shut. CM Amarinder Singh, who rushed to the spot to supervise rescue operations, has announced an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh for the families of the accident victims.ALSO READ | Railways releases helpline numbers for Amritsar train tragedyWATCH | Disturbing moments of train running over people in Amritsar.text-app-download{overflow: hidden;}Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from

Amritsar I, Rajesh Sharma said 50 bodies have been found and at least 50 injured have been admitted to a government hospital. 
 
As the effigy was lit and the fireworks went off, a section of the crowd started retreating towards the tracks where a large number of people were already standing to watch the event, officials said. However, two trains arrived from the opposite direction at the same time giving little opportunity to people to escape, they said. Several people were mowed down by one of the trains, they said.
"Exact figure is not known but it is definitely more than 50-60. We are still evacuating people." Amritsar Police Commissioner SS Srivastava said on Amritsar train accident.
 
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh announced all possible assistance by the Centre to Punjab as a large number of Dussehra revellers standing across railway tracks were mowed down by a passing train.
“Pained beyond words at the loss of precious lives due to a train tragedy during Dussehra festivities in Punjab. My thoughts are with the families of the deceased and prayers with the injured,” Mr. Singh tweeted soon after the incident.
The Home minister said he has spoken to Home secretary and DGP of Punjab regarding the accident and they are rushing to the spot.
“Centre is ready to provide all possible assistance to the state at this hour of grief,” he said.

Extremely saddened by the train accident in Amritsar. The tragedy is heart-wrenching. My deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones and I pray that the injured recover quickly. Have asked officials to provide immediate assistance that is required.
Shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic train incident that occurred in Amritsar. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims. I pray for the injured to recover quickly. Railways is conducting immediate relief and rescue operations.
The train accident in Punjab in which over 50 people have died is shocking. I urge the state government & Congress workers to provide immediate relief at the accident site. My condolences to the families of those who have died. I pray that the injured make a speedy recovery.
 
Area legislator and Local Bodies Minister Navjot Sidhu told a news channel on telephone from Bengaluru that the death toll was alarmingly high.
His wife Navjot Kaur Singh was the Chief Guest at the Dussehra where the incident occurred at around 7 p.m.
 
In a horrific incident, several people glued to watching a burning Ravan effigy while standing on railway tracks were crushed by a speeding train in Punjab. A large number of people were watching a huge Ravan effigy in flames while standing on the tracks at a railway crossing at Jodha Phatak when the train on way from Pathankot to Amritsar mowed them down, triggering anger and outrage.
It was not clear why the train did not halt despite the presence of so many people on the tracks and why the railway crossing was left open for people to gather. Witnesses said that as fire was set to the Ravan effigy amid exploding crackers, many of the around 700 people gathered at the event moved back from the flames only to end up standing on the tracks.
“Out of nowhere came the train,” said a man, sounding angry. “Before anyone could realise what was happening, it ran over scores of people.”
“When the effigy started to burn in full flow, people began running away from it fearing it may fall over them,” said another man. “They did not realise that a speeding train was coming and the train did not sound its hooter.”
Another man felt that the tragedy would have claimed at least 100 lives. The dead included several children, another witness said.
News agency ANI quoted an eyewitness at the accident site as saying: “Congress had organised Dussehra celebrations here without permission. Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife was the chief guest at the celebrations and she continued to give a speech as people were struck down by the train.”
