The Akbar Express was going from Lahore to Quetta when it hit the freight train. Six bogies and the engine were completely destroyed. A report submitted to the Pakistan Railways general manager on Thursday said that the driver of the Akbar Express was given the green signal by the Walhar Railway Station’s station master but the train was diverted on the loop track where the freight train was parked.

Railway authorities have blamed the accident on human error.
