OP's Perspective

At least 13 children, aged between seven and 11 years, died on the spot and four others were injured when a passenger train rammed into their school van at an unmanned railway crossing in UP's Kushinagar district on Thursday morning. A nine-year-old survivor told TOI that the driver couldn't hear the children screaming to warn him about the fast-approaching Sivan-Gorakhpur passenger train as he was talking on his cellphone.

A controversy erupted soon after when chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who reached the site of the accident in Vishunpura, told the locals protesting on the railway tracks to stop the "nautanki (drama)".
