Himachal Pradesh Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla on Saturday expressed grief over the tragic train collision in Odisha.
"This train accident has shocked everyone in the country. I would like to express my condolences to the families of the victims. I am aggrieved," he said.
The Governor added that he was certain that the accident would be fully probed by the government and safeguards would be put in place to ensure that such incidents don't happen again.
"I am sure the government will investigate the matter. We have a dynamic railway minister and he would take the matter seriously. It needs to be ensured that such incidents don't happen again," Shukla said.
Shukla further stated that the disaster was most likely caused by human error and that those found guilty of lapses should be punished.
"I am certain that the incident took place because of a signalling issue and there might be other reasons as well. We are all in pain at the loss of lives in the accident," he said.
