Deadly Train Derailment in Pakistan’s Sindh Province: Over 30 Killed, 100 Injured

A tragic train derailment in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province on Sunday resulted in the death of at least 30 passengers and left over 100 others injured. The accident occurred when at least 10 cars of the Hazara Express train, carrying over 1,000 passengers, veered off the track while crossing a canal bridge on its way from Karachi to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Sindh’s Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah confirmed the casualties and stated that rescue operations are underway to recover passengers still trapped in the wreckage. Critically injured individuals are being transported to Karachi for better medical treatment.

While authorities investigate the incident, the possibility of sabotage is being considered but has not been confirmed. Rescue teams, along with the Pakistan Army and Pakistan Railways personnel, have been working tirelessly to provide relief and assistance to the affected passengers. Local volunteers have also joined in the rescue efforts.
