Eyewitnesses of the Amritsar train tragedy have accused the driver of lying. On Saturday, a day later after a speeding train ran over dozens of people, killing at least 61, the loco pilot of the Jalandhar-Amritsar express pleaded innocent.

The driver had claimed that he had applied ‘emergency brakes’ once he saw around 700 people standing on the tracks but still many people had come in the path of the train. Once the train had slowed down, the crowd started hurling stones on the boogie. The driver further said keeping the safety of passengers in mind, he continued to ride towards Amritsar.
