  • Description

    A TOP LEVEL INQUIRY HAS BEEN ORDERED INTO THE TRAIN DERAILMENT AT PIPRI IN W EST PAKISTAN ON SUNDAY EVENING (MARCH 29), IN WHICH THREE PERSONS WERE KILLED AND MORE THAN 60 INJURED.

    OFFICIALS HAVE NOT RULED OUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT SABOTEURS WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CRASH WHICH OCCURRED AS THE KARACHI-BOUND EXPRESS CROSSED A BRIDGE AT ABOUT 50 MPH (80 KPH). EIGHT OF THE ELEVEN COACHES PLUNGED OFF THE RAILS -- SIX OF THEM FALLING INTO A RAVINE.

    RESCUE SQUADS WORKED THROUGHOUT SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY TO RELEASE TRAPPED PASSENGERS AND CLEAR THE TRACK. ONE OF THE DEAD WAS A TWELVE-YEAR-OLD BOY AND LIMBS OF FIVE OF THE WOUNDED HAD TO BE AMPUTATED.

    OFFICIALS INVESTIGATED THE TRACK TO LOOK FOR SIGNS OF INTERFERENCE.
