Amritsar train accident: A tragedy that was waiting to happen
Organizers celebrated Dussehra at Dhobi Ghat based on verbal permission from railway crossing guards in Amritsar
New Delhi: Dussehra celebrations at Amritsar’s Dhobi Ghat have been a four-decade-old affair. Hundreds throng the place to see the fireworks as the effigy of Ravana is set on fire, celebrating the victory of good over evil. There was no complaint from the Indian Railways or locals over the choice of venue until Friday when train accident took place, killing 61 people.
