It was a train journey that these passengers would certainly want to forget but the memories of them getting trapped inside the ill-fated Kalka Mail and others screaming for help would linger on through their life time.

Some 167 passengers, who survived the derailment of the Delhi-bound express train on Sunday, arrived here on Monday with horror tales to narrate to their relatives and media persons who were waiting for them at the Delhi railway station here.

They came here by a special train from Uttar Pradesh.

Terrified and shocked, the passengers thanked God and recounted memories of Sunday’s accident which killed over 50 people and injured 150 others.

“I am thankful to God for keeping me alive today. If I am talking today, it is only because of him,” was all Dilip, an injured passengers, could say after his arrival here.

Dilip along with Badal, Sanjay and Susan were travelling in the general compartment of the Delhi—bound train.

Dilip’s head banged against the window of the coach due to the sudden impact of the accident near Malwa station in Uttar Pradesh.
