Reports suggested that nearly 25 people were on board especially kids below the age of 10.

The chief minister additionally ordered an inquiry against the Seth Bansidhar School, which would allegedly issue transfer certificates to students enrolled at the school. The chief minister was visiting the accident spot where he was met with angry protesters shouting slogans against the railway and local administration. The minister also said that the Railways will provide an ex gratia amount of Rs 1 lakh for those with serious injuries and Rs 50,000 for those simple injuries. "Strict action will be taken". As of February this year, there were around 4,267 unmanned level crossings in the broad gauge network alone. "The railways had said a gate would soon be installed at the crossing, but nothing happened", said Amar Jeet, a farmer. Adityanath said the guilty would face the most severe punishment.
