Recently one report I read. It says North people used to steal valuables from rail passengers by derailing trains. And they are using one rupee coin for derailing train. This shows how effective our railway security systems

Another derailment. Rail quality & safety seems to be on a downward slope in recent times. Hope rail authorities take quick & effective action.

Why do people have to be killed. Why so many derailments. If any form of targeting which is wrong is being done, let the right ones become the target. Why target innocent people and cause loss of lives. As of now no casualties, lets hope for the best!
