Odisha train accident: Pakistan prays for ‘speedy recovery’ as India mourns loss of hundreds

Pakistan Saturday expressed condolences to hundreds of Indian families who lost their loved ones in a horrific three-train collision in Odisha state, the country’s deadliest rail accident in more than 20 years.

The state has declared Saturday a day of state mourning as a mark of respect to the victims as 288 people have lost their lives, with more fatalities expected. Over 900 people injured are reported injured in the accident.

Wreckage debris was piled high at the crash site near Balasore, in the eastern state, where some carriages had been tossed far from the tracks and others flipped over entirely.

Smashed train compartments were torn open in the impact late on Friday, leaving blood-stained holes in their sides.

In a statement, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that he was “deeply saddened” by the loss of hundreds of lives in the Indian train accident.

“I extend my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who lost their loved ones in this tragedy. Prayers for speedy recovery of the injured,” the prime minister said.
