    Background: At least forty-three people were killed and an estimated 120 injured, some of them critically, when two trains collided at Bahadurgarh, Haryana State, on February 10. A local commuter shuttle ploughed into the rear carriages of a Bombay-bound express at Bahadurgarh Station, 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of New Delhi. Observers said the commuter train overshot rail control signals. The impact hurled several coaches of the stationary express and the commuter's engine car off the tracks, crushing scores of passengers when two of the express's carriages toppled into a ditch. Northern Region rail officials said the Bombay express had unexpectedly stopped at Bahadurgarh, and the commuter train's driver had apparently disregarded--or failed to see--two warning signals in thick fog. The driver of the Delhi-bound commuter shuttle fled the scene to escape being lynched by furious mobs of surviving passengers and onlookers.
