On November 20, early morning at around 3 am when most passengers were sleeping, the fourteen coaches of Indore-Patna Express smashed up against each other and met with what’s being called the worst railway accident in recent years. So far the death toll has climbed up to 146 people with 200 people suffering from injuries. The despair of families frantically looking for their loved ones at the wrecked site is indescribable – our hearts and prayers go out to the families of these victims.
