Two passenger trains collided in Bangladesh, dozens killed

"We fear there are more dead people," Mohammed Akkasuddin, the district's superintendent of police, said in a telephone interview. Police and rescuers workers are still combing the wreckage, he said, according to Bloomberg.

The accident took place around 5pm on Wednesday at the station when Dhaka-bound Chattala Express and Chittagong-bound Mahanagar Godhuli collided head-on due to wrong signal.

The four-member central committee, headed by chief engineer Yusuf Ali Mridha, comprises the chief operating superintendent, chief signal and telecom engineer and chief mechanical engineer, an official release said on Wednesday.

The committee has been asked to submit its report in two days, Bangladesh News 24 hours reports.
