India train tragedy: BBC reporter on the scene in Bihar

Services have been partially restored at a remote station in the Indian state of Bihar where 28 people were killed after being hit by an express train while crossing the tracks.

The victims, mostly Hindu pilgrims, had just alighted from a local train at Dhamara Ghat station and were on their way to a temple in Saharsa district.

The BBC's Nitin Srivastava reports from the spot where the pilgrims were hit by the Rajya Rani Express travelling on the opposite track.
