28 Unidentified Victims of Balasore Train Accident: In the Balasore district of Odisha, where 296 people were killed and 1,100 were injured in a catastrophic train accident four months ago, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has initiated the disposal of the remains of 28 victims, whose rightful claimants have declined to appear in order to retrieve them.

The standard operating procedure (SOP) for the disposal of bodies deposited at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar, as authorized by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in August, was published by the BMC authorities on Saturday.

Two to three vehicles will be made available by the corporation to transport remains from AIIMS-Bhubaneswar to the crematorium. For the past four months, bodies of accident victims that have been scientifically embalmed have been preserved in specialized receptacles at the AIIMS mortuary.

A record will be maintained once the Director of AIIMS transfers the 28 unidentified carcasses that are currently resting in the mortuary to the BMC Health Officer. Each process will be captured on video and in the form of photographs. Every deceased individual will be cremated at the Bharatpur cremation ground.

“Our entire support staff and facilities are prepared.” Sulochana Das, mayor of the BMC, stated that the determination regarding the disposal of bodies would be reached in the presence of CBI representatives, who are anticipated to arrive on October 9.

Coromandel Express, en route to Chennai, collided with a stationary cargo train at Bahanaga Bazar Station in the district of Balasore on June 2. The Yeshwantpur-Howrah Express, which was proceeding on the opposite track, was subsequently involved in the incident. The incident that transpired as a result of deficiencies in the modification of the signalling circuit was arguably one of the most catastrophic train accidents in Indian Railways’ history.

There were 296 fatalities attributed to the disaster. Numerous corpses were unrecognizable. West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Bihar accounted for the majority of the victims. 162 carcasses were transported to AIIMS-Bhubaneswar subsequent to their immediate transfer from Balasore following the accident. A total of 81 bodies were identified, and their custody was subsequently transferred to relatives.-

In light of the numerous claimants presenting bodies, the decision was made to perform DNA profiling on the remains. According to DNA analyses, 53 carcasses were delivered to relatives. In total, 28 bodies remained in the custody of AIIMS. Claimants of bodies have refrained from contacting the AIIMS authorities for the past month. There were reports of fraudulent claimants showing up to receive bodies in order to receive the Indian Railways-announced ex-gratia amount.
