As the railway inspector remain uncertain about the accident, we look through the internet to find the most fatal train accidents in India.
While the primary causes of the train accidents remain fire breakout and collissions, experts have framed some guidelines that can protect or rather reduce the number if train accidents in India.
Fire detection technologists is one the measures that can help save lives. Anti-collision technologies, like freezing the train in case it misses a red signal can prevent accidents.
