31 people are hurt when a passenger train and a freight train collide in Pakistan’s Punjab

<p>In the Punjab region of Pakistan, a passenger train collided with a stationary freight train, injuring 31 passengers. In the Sheikhupura neighborhood, the event took place close to the Qila Sattar Shah Station. The incident happened because the mianwali to lahore passenger train was operating on the same track as the stopped freight train. The collision happened despite the train’s driver’s best attempts to prevent it.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-200963″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-24t172537.237.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 2023 09 24t172537.237″ width=”1500″ height=”840″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-24t172537.237.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-24t172537.237-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px” title=”31 people are hurt when a passenger train and a freight train collide in Pakistan's Punjab 9″></p>
<p>31 people were injured, according to the rescue team, and five of them were sent to the hospital at the district office. The incident is being investigated by railway authorities. Despite the incident, PTI claimed that train service in the Lahore division is believed to be unaffected and to be operating normally.</p>
<p>Four railroad employees, including train driver Imran Sarwar and his aide Muhammad Bilal, have been suspended in reaction to the event. A report from the inquiry commission, which is being overseen by a deputy principle officer, is due in 24 hours. The chairman of the railroads has promised to sue anybody found to be in fault for the crash.</p>
<p>Shahid Aziz, CEO of Railways, highlighted that passenger safety will not be compromised and reaffirmed the company’s commitment to providing safe train travel. Shehbaz Sharif, a former prime minister and the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), expressed regret for the tragedy and demanded that those involved be held accountable.</p>
<p>The disaster serves as a reminder of the difficulties Pakistan’s ailing rail infrastructure is experiencing after the country saw multiple fatal incidents in the previous ten years. A terrible disaster of the Havelian-bound Hazara Express in August of this year at the Sahara Railway Station in Sindh province left 56 people dead and twelve injured.</p>
