The two trains involved were Millat Express train and Sir Syed Express. Millat Express was headed to Sargodha from Karachi and the latter was coming from Rawalpindi. Millat Express derailed and fell on the other track. There, the other train hit Millat. This statement is released by Pakistan Railways. It now depends on the investigation ordered by the PM, whether this statement will be proved right or not. Until then, we offer condolence for the dead and wish for the quick recovery of the injured.
