New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday directed Minister of State for Railways Mukul Roy to visit the site of a train derailment in Rangia in Assam following a blast in which at least 100 passengers were injured.

The direction came a day after Roy expressed reluctance and said that he was waiting for instructions from the Prime Minister, who is currently in charge of the Railways Ministry, and would go once he is asked to.
