Bahanga Train Tragedy: 28 Unidentified Victims Preserved in AIIMS

In Bahanaga, Odisha, a tragic train accident occurred three months ago, claiming the lives of 296 individuals. Regrettably, 28 of the victims remain unidentified to this day. These unidentified bodies have been carefully preserved in a special deep freezer chamber at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Bhubaneswar. AIIMS authorities initially had 81 bodies and 110 claimants, with 53 bodies subsequently matched and handed over based on genetic and DNA tests. Surprisingly, no one has come forward to claim the remaining 28 bodies in the past 10 days. AIIMS Bhubaneswar superintendent, Dilip Parida, stated that they are awaiting instructions from the Ministry of Railways and the Odisha government, as the CBI is investigating the case and currently custodian of the bodies. The bodies are being preserved in a deep freezer to halt the decomposition process. DNA sampling had been conducted for 110 bodies following the Bahanaga train tragedy, and any further action will follow the instructions received. On June 2, a tragic incident occurred at Bahanaga Bazar station in Balasore when the Coromandel Express collided with a goods train that was stationed on the loop line. Simultaneously, the Bengaluru-Howrah Express, traveling on the downline, was struck by the derailed coaches of the Coromandel Express. This devastating collision resulted in the loss of 296 passengers’ lives, while 176 individuals sustained severe injuries. Additionally, 451 passengers suffered minor injuries, and 180 received first aid treatment in the aftermath of this tragic train accident.
