Karukutty derailment caused by negligence of rail staff

Kochi: The derailment of train bogies at Karukutty was caused by negligence on the part of railway officials, it has been found. The railways has suspended a permanent way inspector for the lapse and ordered a comprehensive inquiry into the incident. It is believed that improper repairs of the rail tracks led to the accident. A crack was found in the track during an earlier inspection. The damaged portion should have been cut and welded again; but the officials just put steel plates along side and bolted them up. The preliminary inquiry found that when the train went over the portion, the crack widened and track split away.
