Soon after a Bhubaneswar Court ordered the auction of the mangled coaches of Shalimar bound Coromandel Express that were involved in the tragic accident near Bahanaga station in Odisha’s Balasore district

Balasore, Oct 28: Five months after the Bahanaga triple train accident, the process of clearing the mangled coaches and bogies began today by a Kolkata based company named Mohit Steels, which won the auction to clear the debris from the accident site.

According to the report, as many as 50 workers have been engaged in the work. The mangled bogies and engines are being cut with the help of gas cutters.

Soon after a Bhubaneswar Court ordered the auction of the mangled coaches of Shalimar bound Coromandel Express that were involved in the tragic accident near Bahanaga station in Odisha’s Balasore district, Railways auctioned the damaged 21 coaches for around Rs 3.8 crore. The Court of the 2nd Additional Sessions Judge, Bhubaneswar had  ordered for the auction of the 21 mangled coaches including an engine. The advocate of the petitioner argued that there is no point of the debris to remain lying on the spot; the mangled coaches are creating hindrances for carrying out repair work on the railway track and the 3rd line work.

Worth mentioning, Chennai-bound Coromandel Express, Howrah-bound SMVP-Howrah Superfast Express and a good train were involved in a major accident near the Bahanaga Bazar railway station in Odisha's Balasore district on June 2 evening killing around 290 people. The debris could not be cleared earlier as the CBI investigation into the triple train tragedy was underway.
