Team India’s former player Virender Sehwag, along with Adani Group have made a decision for the children of victims of the tragic Odisha train accident, which happened this past Friday. Over 275 people lost their lives while 1175+ were injured.
Virender Sehwag announced this decision via his Twitter account. He wrote, while attaching an image of the horrific accident, “This image will haunt us for a long time. In this hour of grief, the least I can do is to take care of education of children of those who lost their life in this tragic accident. I offer such children free education at Sehwag International School’s boarding facility.”
Earlier that day, Gautam Adani, Chairperson of the Adani Group, also took to Twitter and wrote, “We all are deeply distressed by the Orissa train accident. We have decided that the Adani group will take the responsibility of the school education of the innocent people who have lost their parents in this accident. It is the joint responsibility of all of us to provide strength to the victims and their families and better tomorrow to the children.”
The crash between three trains, Shalimar-Chennai Coromandel Express, Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast, and a goods train has been said as one of the worst train accidents in India. The Railways Ministry has called for a CBI probe into the investigation.
