The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is poised to take charge of the investigation into the Odisha train accident, which claimed the lives of 275 people and left over 1,100 injured. The decision to involve the CBI was prompted by findings from a preliminary probe that suggested “deliberate interference” in the signalling system, necessitating a thorough investigation by a professional agency.

In accordance with the established procedure, the CBI will take over the Balasore GRP case number 64, which was initially registered by the Odisha Police on June 3. The case has been filed under multiple IPC sections, such as those concerning causing hurt, endangering lives through rash or negligent action, and common intention.
