Dozens Of People Ran To Help
Even people from Diara area had reached for help. People from villages like Bharkhar, Rahthua, Kant, Kaithi, Dhodhanpur, Babudera etc. had reached in large numbers. A gleam of hope was visible in the eyes of the injured. Brahmapur police station incharge Ranjit Kumar was the first to reach here. The administration team from the headquarters arrived after about an hour. By then the villagers had started taking out the passengers. There was difficulty in relief work due to pitch darkness, so the villagers brought a generator from nearby and made arrangements for lighting there. Someone is running with water, someone is taking out the children. Someone is helping the injured onto the ambulance. So they were doing whatever they could. Dozens of people like former chief Vinod Ojha, Shailesh Kumar, Vishal Singh, Anand Sharma etc. were running to cooperate.
On one hand, people's lives were in danger, efforts were being made to save them and on the other hand, there were some who were looking for opportunities in the disaster. A person was running away carrying a passenger's bag, which caught people's attention. The bag was snatched from his hand and handed over to the police. There were jewelery etc. in it.
The police reprimanded him and released him with a warning. Everyone was busy saving the injured, but that person seemed helpless due to his habit. He was then seen cleaning his hands on the luggage. This time people beat him severely. This was also a scene. Passengers' belongings were scattered, tracks were uprooted, bogies were overturned.

The reasons behind the accident are being investigated

Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said that the rescue work has been completed. All the bogies have been checked. Another train has also reached the station to evacuate the stranded passengers. Union Minister and Buxar MP Ashwini Kumar Choubey reached the spot to oversee the relief and rescue operations. Ashwini Chaubey told that this is a terrible accident. I have informed DM, NDRF, SDRF, Chief Secretary and DGP. People have also been requested to reach the spot and help others. I want to thank the local people for providing help.
