A day after seven people were charred to death in a fire mishap in Howrah-Dehradun Express, two trains collided near Jharsuguda railway station in Orissa in the wee hours on Wednesday.

Rourkela: Four persons were injured in a
collision between the Koraput-Howrah Samaleswari Express and a

signal was given for one to depart Jharsuguda Station, about
110 km, from here, GRP DSP at Jharsuguda, MK Mahato said.

While one Bikash Nayak (24) of Samabalpur was admitted
