Scapegoating him won't change the pathetic way those railway employees function.

Many superfast train drivers drive drunk and the pay & perks isn't low by any Indian standards.
But this does not look like a human error.
The first train derailed near a goods train and than the second one had too less of a time to react.
Windows for both train accident could be less than 1/2 hour. If accidents took more time than that means the system is at fault.

If sequence of events are to be believed, it bears similarity to the Khanna rail disaster which killed over 200 people.
After Modi govt came the worst accident untill now was:

The Pukhrayan train derailment of 20 Nov 2016 when 14 coaches of Indore–Rajendra Nagar Express got derailed at Pukhrayan, near Kanpur, UP killing 152 and injuring 260.

That particular incident was attributed to the ISI.
There were a series of derailments during that period including one in Vizag and ISI was eventually nailed.

The incidents stopped after the Nepal ISI module was busted.

I meant fatalities have dropped significantly since 2018-19, covid notwithstanding.

Was Yeswantpur-Howrah express running late?

Its timing Up/Down at Bahanaga Bazar doesn't seem to suggest it should've been there at that time.

I expect more Passenger train accidents throughout this year.
This seems like deliberate political sabotage. We are headed towards some serious trouble if the investigation is not done properly and culprits are not punished.

Sequence of events:

1) Bengaluru-Howrah super fast express derails near Balasore.

2) Coromandel Express coming from opposite direction rams into derailed coaches.

3) 12 Coromandel Exp coaches derail, some of which hit stationary Goods Train on the third track.
