On Monday, Narendra Singh Bundela, the Inspector General of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), confirmed the withdrawal of all nine NDRF teams that had been sent to the Balasore area of Odisha to assist with the rescue efforts following the triple-train tragedy.
“Train traffic on the main lines has been resumed, and following the complete operation, everything is back to normal. The nine NDRF teams that were working in Balasore, Odisha, have all been withdrawn,” according to Narendra Singh Bundela, who spoke to ANI.
He claimed that because three trains each had many coaches, they had to overcome many difficulties.
“Coaches were derailed and toppled in the manner in which trains crashed. We had to go inside the damaged coaches to free people who had become trapped inside and to treat the injured,” the IG added.
The administration claimed on Sunday that the catastrophe was brought on by a “change in electronic interlocking”.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been tasked with conducting the investigation into the terrible Odisha railway disaster, which resulted in the deaths of 275 persons and over 1000 injuries.
