সেতু থেকে গড়িয়ে নদীতে পড়ে গেল ক্যাপিটাল এক্সপ্রেসের ইঞ্জিন। চলন্ত অবস্থায় ইঞ্জিন লাইনচ্যূত হয়ে জলে পড়ে যাওয়া, পেছনের দু’টি কামরা তুবড়ে পাহাড়ের মতো ওপরের দিকে উঠে গিয়েছে। কামরার ভিতর আটকে থাকা অন্তত দু’জনের মৃত্যুর আশঙ্কা করছে রেল। মঙ্গলবার রাত সাড়ে ৯টা নাগাদ শামুকতলা রোড স্টেষশন লাগোয়া হাড়িভাঙা সেতুর কাছে দুর্ঘটনাটি ঘটে। রাত এগারোটা নাগাদ উদ্দার কাজ শুরু হয়। তবে তার আগেই কামরার যাত্রীদের অনেকে নিজেরাই বেরিয়ে এসেছেন। আহত অন্তত ২০ জনকে শামুকতলা এবং আলিপুরদুয়ার হাসপাতালে ভর্তি করানো হয়েছে।
শামুকলতা রোড স্টেশন পার করার পরে হাড়িভাঙা সেতুতে ওঠার পরেই দুর্ঘটনাগ্রস্ত হয় ক্যাপিট্যাল এক্সপ্রেস। সেতু পার করার পরেই ইঞ্জিনের পর থেকে লাগেজ রেক সহ তিনটি কামরা লাইনচ্যুত হয়েছে। দু’টি কামরা তুবড়ে উপরের দিকে উঠে গিয়েছে। ট্রেনের ইঞ্জিনও দুমড়ে মুচড়ে গিয়েছে। শামুকতলা রোড স্টেশনে

ট্রেনটির স্টপেজ ছিল না। সাধারণত স্টেশন এবং লাগোয়া এলাকায় রেল সেতু থাকলে ট্রেনের গতি কমানো হয়। এ ক্ষেত্রে ট্রেনের গতি কম ছিল না বলে যাত্রীদের অভিযোগ। যাত্রীদের কয়েকজন জানিয়েছেন, সেতুতে ওঠার পরেই বিকট শব্দ হয়। সব কামরাই দুলে ওঠে। ক্ষতিগ্রস্ত কামরা ছাড়াও সংরক্ষিত অনান্য কামরার যাত্রীদেরও অনেকেই তীব্র ঝাকুনিতে পড়ে গিয়ে চোট পেয়েছেন। হাসপাতাল সূত্রে জানানো হয়েছে, রাত পর্যন্ত যাঁদের হাসপাতালে পাঠানো হয়েছে তাঁদের আঘাত আশঙ্কাজনক নয়। তবে কামরার ভিতরে বেশ কয়েকজন আটকে রয়েছে। রেলের তরফে হতাহতের খবর না জানানো হলেও, প্রতক্ষ্যদর্শীদের দাবি, অন্তত দু’টি দেহ চেপ্টে যাওয়া কামরার দেখা যাচ্ছে।
রেলের তরফে উদ্ধার কাজ শুরু হয়েছে। অসমগামী লাইনে আপাতত ট্রেন চলাচল বন্ধ। এ দিকে ইঞ্জিন চালকের খোঁজ মেলেনি। নদীতে এই সময়ে বেশি জল নেই। পুলিশ এবং রেলের বিপর্যয় মোকাবিলা দল জলেও তল্লাশই শুরু করেছে। ঘটনার খবর পেয়েই রাতেই আলিপুরদুয়ার ডিভিশন থেকে রিলিফ ট্রেন নিয়ে রওনা দেন রেলের আধিকারিকরা। প্রস্তুত রাখা হয় নিউ জলপাইগুড়ির বিপর্যয় মোকাবিলা দলকেও। উত্তরপূর্ব সীমান্ত রেলের আলিপুরদুয়ার ডিভিশনের ডিআরএম সঞ্জীব কিশোর বলেন, ‘‘উদ্ধার কাজ শুরু হয়েছে। হতাহতের বিষয়ে এখনই কিছু বলা যাবে না।’’
শাসকদল তৃণমূলের তরফেও উদ্ধার এবং যাত্রীদের নিরাপদ জায়গায় পাঠানোর জন্য আলিপুরদুয়ার এবং শামুকতলা থেকে দল পাঠানো হয়েছে। আলিপুরদুয়ারের বিধায়ক তথা জেলা তৃণমূল সভাপতি সৌরভ চক্রবর্তী বলেন, ‘‘রেলের সঙ্গে জেলা প্রশাসন-পুলিশ সমন্বয় করে উদ্ধার কাজ করছে। আতঙ্কগ্রস্ত যাত্রীদের নিরাপদে রাখার ব্যবস্থা হচ্ছে। জেলা প্রশাসন যাবতীয় সহযোগিতা করছে।’’

“The situation is worse in the Guwahati-Rangiya stretch where the train becomes totally crammed. The railways had earlier announced that two additional coaches will be added to the train from June 18, but it has

During the last o­ne year, Alipurduar Division of N. F. Railway has made safety of passengers o­ne of its primary goals and executed several planned works with steady focus o­n eliminating threats to safety.
To avoid accidents at elephant corridors, several measures have already been taken including speed restrictions o­n trains, training of locomotive drivers and coordination with Forest Departments for receiving early warning o­n movements of elephants etc. To bolster the efforts, the division has also undertaken a project for installation of Night Vision Cameras in the locomotives in collaboration with Defence Research and Developments Organizations (DRDO) laboratory at Dehradun. A prototype has been developed and tested under laboratory conditions. Soon, field trials would be conducted o­n these night vision cameras.

If the trials becomes successful, these cameras will greatly help locomotive drivers in spotting elephants, especially in Alipurduar – New Mal Junction – Siliguri section of the division.
Unmanned level crossing happens to be o­ne of the major areas where accidents take place. During last o­ne year, the division has sent out about fifteen thousand SMSs to road users informing them about the precautions to be taken while crossing an unmanned level crossing. This has created awareness among public and helped in reducing accidents in unmanned level crossings. The division has now planned to continue such campaign for sustaining its effectiveness.
During the last o­ne year, the division has closed 12 level crossing gates and in lieu of these provided eight Low Height Subways. The division has also manned o­ne unmanned level crossing. The division has been working hard to realize the announced goal of eliminating all level crossings in Indian Railways in a phased manner.
Besides these initiatives, the division has also conducted 28 safety drives during the last o­ne year and organized 81 Safety Seminars to make frontline staff, road users and general public aware of the necessary safety precautions to be taken within railway working areas.
To make plan for the coming year, the division has conducted the annual level crossing survey to gauge the density of traffic at each level crossing within the division. The density of traffic is a parameter that guides the railways to decide o­n closure, manning and construction of road-over-bridge at level crossings.
