The Indian Railways said sabotage by suspected Maoist guerrillas may have caused the train derailment in West Bengal that left 20 people dead and over 100 injured early Friday.
"We suspect it is a case of sabotage. The driver (of the passenger train) has reported to have heard a large sound. There was definite tinkering with the tracks," member railway board Vivek Sahai told reporters here.
The engine and 13 coaches of a Mumbai-bound passenger train derailed and were hit by a speeding goods train in West Bengal early Friday.
