A shocking video has surfaced of Amritsar train accident. It’s been reported, at least 60 people are feared dead and the number can rise anytime.
Tragic Amritsar train accident
This accident happened at the Joda Fatak area where a large crowd had gathered to watch the fireworks. The organisers of the Dussehra celebration asked people to move back after there was an explosion of firecrackers. A big crowd had moved towards the railway tracks.
The Jalandhar-Amritsar DMU was also crossing the track at the same time
The officials said, there was a lot of noise because of which people couldn’t hear the train.
As a result, they were run over by the train.
