Toll rises to 51, more bodies recovered

Press Trust of India

Posted: Jun 24, 2003 at 1123 hrs IST

Seventeen more bodies were recovered from the mangled coaches of Karwar-Mumbai holiday special train, raising the toll in Sunday's mishap on the Konkan Railways to 51. The rescue operations have been affected by the incessant heavy downpour.

Sixty injured passengers have been admitted to various hospitals at Oros, Ratnagiri, Kankavli and Goa, railway sources told reporters. The condition of 15 injured was stated to be serious.

About 150 army personnel are engaged in rescue operations which have been hampered due to incessant rains, officials here.

Badly mangled coaches have been lifted with the help of cranes but the train's engine and a bogey are still trapped under the debris.

Most passengers have been rescued and chances of more persons trapped inside are remote, the officials added.
