Ranchi: The CPI(M) on Thursday blamed the
railway administration for yesterday`s train accident in
Sahibganj district in Jharkhand that claimed lives of five

"The Brahmaputra Mail mishap in Sahibganj was caused
due to the railway administration`s callous and negligent
attitude towards rail safety and security," CPI(M) Jharkhand
unit secretary G K Baksi said in a statement here.

"The railway administration has overburdened employees
with workload, particularly on drivers and loco running staff,
due to shortage of man power... and there is no maintenance of
tracks and infrastructure," he alleged.

Condoling the death of five passengers in the
collision between Brahmaputra Mail and goods train, he said
"Our party demands proper treatment of the injured and their
proper rehabilitation".
