Rescuers have been searching in darkness for passengers feared trapped on the trains that were travelling in opposite directions when some of their carriages derailed in Madhya Pradesh state, the officials said. West Central Railway spokesman Piyush Mathur said several hundred people have been rescued after the trains derailed within minutes of each other near the town of Harda at about 11.30 pm on Tuesday. "There are 12 casualties," Mathur told the CNN-IBN network, adding that the death toll could rise.
