Tragedy strikes as a goods train collides with Kanchanjunga Express in West Bengal, leaving 9 dead and 41 injured. Investigations into the incident are ongoing

The tragic collision between the Kanchanjungja Express and a goods train near Rangapani station in West Bengal on Monday has left a community devastated, with personal stories emerging of lives lost and shattered.

Clev Subba, a dynamic young officer with the Excise Department, was returning to Manikchak when the accident claimed his life. Known for his vibrant personality and dedicated service, Subba’s sudden demise has left his locality in disbelief and mourning. His wife, employed at North Bengal Medical College, now cares for their two-year-old child amid an outpouring of tributes on social media.

Prayash, a senior colleague and friend, expressed shock over Subba’s untimely death. “We both work in the excise department and have conducted major raids together. We’ve also served together during G-20. He was very mature and his hard work always set him apart. I’m shocked and at a loss for words. I heard this news from the media and am deeply shocked,” Prayash told News18.

Ripa Ghosh, 28, traveling to her brother’s wedding, recounted the harrowing ordeal. “I will never sleep, it’s not possible for me to sleep ever. This was like an earthquake when that goods train banged into us. Our bogey just turned upside down, and my 9-year-old child slipped out of my hand. There was too much noise, and I couldn’t describe what I was feeling. Many seats fell on me, and people were rushing around as everyone was almost running. I have immense pain in my body, and my son has a head injury,” she said.

As the community mourns its losses, rail authorities are investigating the incident. On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed condolences, calling the incident in West Bengal tragic and stating his prayers for the swift recovery of the injured.

Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, who visited the spot and took stock of relief operations, announced compensation for the injured and kin of the deceased. While Rs 10 lakh would be given to the next of kin of the deceased, Rs 2.5 lakh would be provided to the grievously injured and Rs 50,000 to those with minor injuries, Vaishnaw posted on X.
