Family members of five passengers along with one person, who suffered injuries in Monday’s collision between Lingampally-Falaknuma MMTS train and Hundry Intercity Express at Kacheguda Railway Station, deposed before Railway Safety Commissioner Ram Kripal here on Wednesday.

Kripal began the statutory inquiry into the accident at the Kacheguda Railway Station Master’s chambers, where five persons arrived on behalf of the injured at 10.30 am and detailed about the incident.
Seventeen people, including the loco pilot L Chandrasekhar, suffered injuries in the incident. A few of the injured were undergoing treatment at Care Hospital, Nampally, while others were admitted to Osmania General Hospital (OGH) in Afzalgunj.

Railway Safety Commissioner Ram Kripal on Wednesday asked officials dealing with the signalling system at Kacheguda Railway Station to share information from the signal data logger.

The data logger contains information related to the arrival and departure of the trains along with the timings at the station. This, along with the CCTV footages containing the collision, will be crucial for the inquiry into the incident.

Accompanied by senior railway officials Sanjeev Agarwal, N Sitaram Prasad and others, Kripal inspected the tracks at the incident spot and later the mangled cabin of the MMTS train.

Kripal also sought information from officials about the surveillance cameras that captured the collision from the coach-cleaning area near the station. The investigators had already seized the footage.

Kripal might meet railway officials at the divisional railway manager’s conference hall in Secunderabad on Thursday to collect more information from them.
