    5 coaches of Chennai-Mangalore Express derail in Tamil Nadu, 42 injured

    Viruthachalam/Nagpur: 42 people have been injured after five coaches of the Chennai-Mangalore Express derailed near Tamil Nadu’s Viruthachalam district.

    The injured are being rushed to a nearby hospital.

    More details are awaited.

    Last month, five people including a Karnataka legislator were killed when a granite-laden truck rammed into an express train at a level crossing in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur.

    India has the world’s fourth largest railway network that ferries more than 23 million passengers every day, but infrastructure is poorly maintained and accidents are common.

    In 2012, a government report said almost 15,000 people were killed every year on the railways, describing the deaths as an annual “massacre” due mainly to poor safety standards.
