Mamata has “certain doubts”

Staff Reporter

SAINTHIA (WEST BENGAL): Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, who visited the spot where the Uttarbanga Express and the Vananchal Express were involved in an accident, said on Monday that the decision on demanding a CBI probe would be taken only after the Commissioner of Railway Safety concluded an inquiry. Earlier, while leaving for Sainthia from Sealdah, Ms. Banerjee said she had “certain doubts” over the incident. She also visited the Suri hospital where the injured were being treated.

West Bengal Finance Minister Asim Dasgupta also visited the accident site and announced the State government's decision to pay Rs.3 lakh to the kin of those killed and bear the medical expenses of the injured.

“We [the State government] demand a serious inquiry into the incident so that the perpetrators are brought to book,” he said.

West Bengal PCC president Manas Bhunia said the authorities should work together for relief and rescue operations than engage in “cheap politics.”
