Images: 29 killed, 25 hurt in MP twin train derailment
MP Government spokesman Anupam Rajan said, "29 bodies, including those of 13 men, 11 women and five children, have been recovered so far from the mishap site between Khirkiya and Harda, about 160 km from Bhopal."
Over 250 passengers have been rescued, a railway official said.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, however, told Parliament that 12 passengers were killed.
"The prima facie cause of the incident is stated to be 'flash flood due to heavy rains'," Prabhu told the Rajya Sabha amid the din by slogan-shouting opposition members.
