    Railways, while confirming the death of 4 people in the accident, has not ruled out sabotage in view of a shutdown call by Maoists in the area.
    Relief and rescue operations are on in full swing at the accident site. Relief train is taking the stranded passengers to the nearest station.
    Railway minister Sadanada Gowda expressed grief over the loss of lives in the mishap. He directed the railway administration to render best possible treatment to the injured passengers.
    Railway minister announced compensation of Rs 2 lakh for the family of the dead, Rs 1 lakh for those seriously injured and Rs 20,000 for those with minor injuries.
    "Commissioner of railway safety will conduct an independent inquiry to find out the cause of the accident," the railway minister said.
    Railway Board chairman Arunendra Kumar said sabotage seems to be the prima facie cause of the accident.
