The suspended employees are loco master Tasir Uddin, assistant loco master Apu Dey and guard Abdur Rahman.

Sujan said four committees were constituted at different levels to investigate the accident.

Of the injured, 10 are in Brahmanbaria Hospital while nine in Pangu Hospital in Dhaka, three in Dhaka Medical College Hospital, three in Kasba Hospital, seven in Dhaka CMH and four in Sylhet Osmani Medical College Hospital.
