Announcing a PROBE into the train accident near Kanpur, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu declared that the “strictest possible action” will be taken against the guilty. Making a statement in Lok Sabha after question hour, he said a statutory inquiry by the Commissioner of Railway Safety has also been ordered to find out the cause of the accident.

“There shall be separate comprehensive investigation aided by latest technical and forensic analysis by an appropriate agency to look into all possible angles. Strictest possible action would be taken against the guilty”.

Prabhu said old-technology coaches in operation lacked the crash-proof characteristics of modern coaches. The process of replacement of these coaches, which had been announced in the last rail budget, will be fast-tracked, he said.
