Fire on Benapole Express train in Dhaka; 4 dead

Staff Reporter:

Fire Service and civil volunteers brought the fire under control around 10:20pm.

The Daily Sun found that at least four compartments of the train have been engulfed in flames. While many passengers managed to evacuate quickly, some struggled to rescue their loved ones from the burning train, resulting in distressing scenes of people crying aloud.

Our correspondent saw a hand of a burnt body hanging out of the train window. It was evident that the individual, a woman, suffered fatal burns on the spot.

The train comprised more than seven compartments, and after the fire broke out, the train’s loco master disconnected the engine bogey from the other compartments, removing it from the scene.

Masud Sarwar, manager of Kamalapur Railway station, informed the Daily Sun that the train had departed from Benapole station in Jashore at 1pm and was scheduled to arrive at 8:45pm.

“We presume that the train was set on fire sometime after 8:30pm. Following the incident, I am not certain whether any trains will depart from Dhaka to Jashore during the night,” he said.
