Description:
The Fatuha train crash was a rail transport accident that occurred on April 4, 1998, in India. Removal of fishplates led to the packed Howrah-Danapur Express jumping tracks, killing at least 11 passengers and injuring more than 50 others near Fatuha station on the Eastern Railway's Danapur division. In all, nine bogies derailed disrupting traffic.

Local citizens assisted the injured at the scene until authorities arrived. The injured were rushed to the PMC hospital, Nalanda Medical College hospital and a hospital in Patna, about 20 km from the accident site. The remaining passengers were taken to Patna by a special train. While 11 passengers died at the scene, one succumbed to injuries in Patna Medical College hospital.

"Prima facie, the cause of the accident is removal of fish plates on the right side of the tracks," railway officials said.
