In a miraculous turn of events, Assam man Dulal Mazumdar has been rescued from the debris of a catastrophic triple train accident in Odisha. Dulal endured two days without food or water while trapped beneath the wreckage.

The tragic incident occurred on June 2, when the Coromandel and Bengaluru-Howrah Express trains derailed and collided with a goods train at the Bahanaga Railway Station in Balasore district, resulting in a devastating loss of more than 300 lives and leaving approximately 900 injured.

Amidst the chaos, Dulal Mazumdar, who suffered severe injuries during the collision, was forcefully thrown a considerable distance away from the accident site. Remarkably, workers involved in the restoration of the damaged tracks discovered Dulal alive amidst the wreckage and immediately rushed him to the nearby Soro hospital, according to reports.

Due to the critical nature of his head injuries, Dulal was subsequently transferred to Balasore Hospital to receive specialized care. While his condition is reported to be stable, media sources indicate that he remains in a critical state and is not yet out of danger.

Rupak Das, another survivor from Assam, is also currently under medical supervision at a hospital in Cuttack, as a result of the tragic train crash.

Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw addressed the media on June 4, announcing a significant development in the investigation of the accident. Vaishnaw stated that, based on the information received thus far, the Railway Board has recommended the involvement of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct a thorough probe into the train crash.
