The death toll from India's worst train accident in years rose to 146 on
Monday after rescuers used cranes to lift the last of the twisted metal
wreckage to check for bodies underneath.
About 2,000 workers were clearing the tracks and checking for damage to the rail line in hopes of resuming traffic through one of India's busiest railway junctions by Monday evening, railway official Amit Kumar said. The government called for an investigation into what caused the accident, promising to punish anyone found responsible.
