The CBI has filed charges against railway officials deemed responsible for the Balasore train catastrophe. The indictment alleges culpable homicide not amounting to murder and tampering with evidence in the disaster that killed 292 people. The CBI apprehended Senior Section Engineer Arun Kumar Mahato, Soho Senior Section Engineer Muhammad Amir Khan, and Technician Pappu Kumar. The Ministry of Railways had previously released the Railway Safety Commissioner's report, which said that the cause of the accident was a signaling error. The examination also discovered that the failure and lack of attention on the part of the railway workers contributed to the catastrophe.
