Shanghai: The investigation into a bullet train crash in China last summer that killed 40 people has come and gone with scarcely any fresh information released about what led to the disaster.

The secretiveness surrounding the report on the crash, originally due in September and reportedly extended until late November, is typical of the sensitivities shown toward wider troubles plaguing the showcase high-speed rail program.

Railway Ministry officials refused comment on Tuesday on the accident and the probe into its causes. An expert, Wang Mengshu, in comments posted on the government work safety administration`s website, promised full and accurate disclosure of its findings.
