Members of a probe committee, appointed by the Central Railway to look into the fire at the Kurla signal cabin on April 18 that badly affected train services for two days, are unable to come to a consensus on who is to blame.

The CR has now forwarded the committee report to the technical heads of the section seeking their opinion on the matter.

The committee report has been forwarded to the chief, signal technical engineering, and chief, electrical engineering, and after their remarks are put on it, it will be submitted to CR general manager Subodh Jain on Monday.

“The report has been forwarded to the technical heads so that they can study and put their respective remarks on it. Later, the report will be submitted to the GM for provisional remarks,” a senior CR official said, requesting anonymity.

Action will be taken against those responsible for the accident, as well as against those who failed to restore services in the minimum time. At the same time, those who did unprecedented work during the crisis will be rewarded, railway officials said.
