In Pakistan, the death toll from a train collision has risen to 62

On Tuesday, the death toll from the train collision in Pakistan’s Sindh province rose to 62, as rescue operations came to an end and the track was reopened

The News International quoted Sukkur Tariq Latif, Divisional Superintendent (DS) Railway, as saying, “The up and down track has been restored; have received orders to resume train service.” For the previous 27 hours, the track had been closed.

According to a statement from Pakistan Railways, the accident occurred after the coaches of one train, the Millat Express, derailed and fell across the opposite track, where they were hit by another train, the Sir Syed Express.

According to a Pakistani newspaper, the train accident occurred when a track welding joint failed. The right side of the up track’s welding joint failed, causing 12 Millat Express coaches to crash onto the down track.
