New Delhi, May 5:-- India's central railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Sunday said  the cause of the fatal train accident in the eastern Indian state of Odisha was due to changes made to the point machine and electronic interlocking system.


The train crash resulted in 288 deaths and over 1,000 injuries.
