30 killed, 80 injured after train derails in Pakistan


 |  Islamabad

At least 30 people were killed and over 80 others sustained injuries after 10 bogies of Hazara Express derailed on Sunday in Sindh's Nawabshah district, 275 kilometers away from Karachi, Geo News reported.

Asian News International reported that at least 30 died in the accident while passengers are still stranded in a bogie of the Havelian-bound Hazara Express.

The cause of the train disaster is still unknown.

Accidents on Pakistan's decaying rail system are common and successive governments have for years been trying to secure funds to upgrade the rail network as part of China's Belt and Road Initiative for Infrastructure projects.

In June 2021 two trains collided near Daharki in Sindh killing at least 65 people and injuring about 150 others. (With inputs from ANI)
