The Sikh community performed Saturday morning last rites at a cremation centre in Attock for the 20 pilgrims who died in Friday’s accident in Sheikhpura.

Over 20 Sikh pilgrims were killed and seven injured after a train crashed into a passenger bus at a railway crossing near Farooqabad’s Jatri Road Friday afternoon.

The van collided with the Shah Hussain Express traveling from Karachi to Lahore. The bus was traveling to Peshawar from Nankana Sahib and had 30 Sikh pilgrims aboard.

According to the Pakistan Railways spokesperson, the divisional engineer has been suspended and Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed has promised action against those at fault.

MNA Ranjit Singh says he’s satisfied with the cooperation of the authorities and expressed grief on the loss of lives.
