Investigations suggest that the derailment happened because of a fracture in the rail line. Because of the sudden impact on the broken rail, the locomotive and a few cars decoupled and left cars derailed and overturned. A passenger who survived that accident told to media, "I heard a loud bang and fell on the floor of the coach. It was very dark, I couldn't see anything, felt broken glass everywhere".
