    Could Kavach safety system have prevented Kanchanjunga tragedy?

    Jaya Varma Sinha, Chairman & CEO of Railway Board, stated that the anti-collision system Kavach was absent in the Kanchanjunga Express, which tragically collided with a goods train on Monday, resulting in at least 9 fatalities and over 46 injuries. "Prima facie, it seems to be a human error," she said, further adding that "first indications suggest that this is a case of signal disregard."
