'LAHORE: Federal Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq on Monday said that loose and broken nuts and bolts have been found from the spot of Gujranwala train accident, Samaa reported.

Addressing a press conference, Rafiq said that investigation committee is analysing the broken and loose nuts and bolts.

The Minister said that an independent joint investigation team is conducting inquiry of the accident and requires another two to three days to complete the report.

He confirmed that no initial report of the accident has been prepared while some people are trying to declare the Chanawa bridge not fit for railway operations.

“The railway bridge was completely fit for daily operations while engineers have confirmed that there was no speed limit for the railway track,” Rafiq said.

He said that a pillar of the bridge is affected due to the accident.

“We have found evidence of derailing of the train's engine around 945 feet away from the bridge,” Federal Railway Minister said.

Investigation team is also analysing any possibility of fault in the engine, he added. – Samaa
