ग्रीस में हुए ट्रेन हादसे में मरने वालों की संख्या बढ़ कर 36 हो गई है.

मंगलवार शाम को उत्तरी ग्रीस में ये हादसा दो ट्रेनों के आपस में आमने सामने टकराने से हुआ.

दुर्घटना पैसेंजर ट्रेन और मालगाड़ी के बीच टक्कर से हुई है. इस बीच स्टेशन मास्टर को पुलिस ने गिरफ़्तार कर लिया है.

ग्रीस के ट्रांसपोर्ट मिनिस्टर कोस्तास कारामैनलिस ने कहा कि हताहतों की संख्या के बारे में अभी तक सटीक जानकारी नहीं है.

उन्होंने कहा, “आज वाक़ई दुखद दिन है, यहां हम सभी दुख और संवेदना प्रकट करते हैं.”

उन्होंने कहा कि इस भीषण हादसे में राहत और बचाव कार्य करना बहुत मुश्किल हो रहा है.

सरकार के प्रवक्ता ने कहा है कि प्रशासन की प्राथमिकता घायलों का इलाज़ करने और संबंधियों को संबल प्रदान करने की है.

बुधवार को ग्रीस के प्रधानमंत्री ने दुर्घटना स्थल का दौरा किया और मामले की जांच के आदेश दिए.
