Two trains derailed on flooded tracks in the central Indian province of Madhya Pradesh. Several deaths are reported.
Ministers said the Kamayani Express and Janta Express services had come off the rails on a damaged bridge near Harda after heavy rain.
Indian rail minister Suresh Prabhu said an inquiry had been ordered after the disaster.
It was unclear how many people had died but the Indian government said there would be ex gratia payments for loss of life, grievous injuries and smaller injuries.
Prime minister Shri Narendra Modi said: “The two train accidents in Madhya Pradesh are deeply distressing. Deeply pained over the loss of lives. Condolences to families of deceased.
“My prayers with the injured. Authorities are doing everything possible on the ground. The situation is being monitored very closely.”
