The horrific Tezgam incident took more than 70 lives after a gas cylinder exploded in the train near Talwari station in Liaquatpur area of Rahim Yar Khan .
Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed said that more deaths occurred as people tried to escape from the burning train. He said,
“Most deaths occurred from people jumping off the train.”
Instead of accepting the negligence of the Railway authority, Rasheed blamed everything on the passengers. After the deadly Tezgam incident, opposition members, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Mustafa Kamal, Jibran Nasir and others demanded Rasheed to resign from his post.
