As Verum read the news in her crystal ball, she gasped, “A horrible tragedy has occurred in the Odisha state of India.”

“What happened?” said Felix, concerned.

“On June 2, a passenger train named Coromandel Shalimar Express was on its way to Chennai at high speed. But the train derailed (went off the track) and hit the goods train in the Balasore area of Odisha. Many coaches of both trains flipped over. Right at that time, another fast passenger express was on its way. The Yesvantpur-Howrah Superfast Express crashed into the derailed coaches of the two trains!” said Verum.

“Oh no!” Scorch was shocked.

“The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams, police, firefighters, and volunteers rushed to the place of the accident to look for people and help them to safety. Unfortunately, 275 people lost their lives and 1,000 more were injured. It is one of the deadliest train accidents in the country,” Verum informed.

“That is sad,” Orak said.

“I have a question,” Scorch said, “Why did the Coromandel Shalimar Express derail in the first place?”

“It derailed due to a signalling issue,” Verum answered. “Now, the tracks have been repaired and the railway operations have started again.”
