Amritsar Dussera tragedy is shocking. It is a national disaster. Political blame-game not-withstanding, the event close to railway line, people assembling at the rail lines, the speed of the train and the role of the railway gateman close to the site need to be thoroughly examined. Seeing the videos three things are clear 1. The event was organised very close to the railway line 2. The area for the event was smaller than required for such an event. 3. People gathered on the line in large number. 4. The speed of the train was unusually fast as would have been in a city promises. Questions arise as to: ‘Why was the event organised so close to the railway line?’; ‘Was the railway informed of the event?’ ; ‘Why was an LeD display towards the railway line?’; ‘Why did the people stand on railway line knowing fully well that this was the busiest route’; ‘Why did the railway gateman give signal to the train to proceed when the people standing on line was within his site?’ ‘Why did the driver of the train move at such a fast speed while moving within the city limits?’ etc. must be investigated in detail to find out the truth.
