Odisha train mishap: Gautam Adani takes responsibility to educate children orphaned in the accident

New Delhi: Gautam Adani on Sunday announced that the Adani Group would assume the responsibility of providing education for children who tragically lost their parents in the Odisha triple train accident.

The devastating incident resulted in the loss of at least 288 lives and left over 1,000 individuals injured on Saturday.

As the leader of a conglomerate encompassing various sectors such as ports, energy, commodities, airports, and data centers, Adani emphasised the collective obligation to aid the victims and their families and secure a brighter future for the affected children.

"We are all deeply disturbed by the train accident in Odisha," Gautam Adani tweeted in Hindi. "We have decided that the Adani Group will take care of the school education of the innocents who have lost their parents in this accident. It is the joint responsibility of all of us to support the victims and their families and give a better tomorrow to the children."

Meanwhile, a public interest litigation (PIL) has been filed, seeking Supreme Court’s direction to establish an expert panel to assess the safety protocols employed by the railways.

The PIL also demands the formation of an inquiry panel, headed by a retired Supreme Court judge, to investigate the train accident and submit a report to the court within a two-month timeframe.
