Also travelling with them was a family friend Ram Parmesh Singh.

"I cannot find my father and I have been looking everywhere for him. Some people told me to look in hospitals and in morgues but I am clueless as to what to do. I have a fractured arm and my sisters have also sustained injuries,"
she said.

"I do not know if my marriage, which was to be held on 1 December, will go as planned or not. I want to find my father now. I have tried calling everywhere, but I do not know what to do now," she said.

Ruby also cannot trace the wedding clothes and jewellery she was carrying along.

She has not filed a complaint yet.

Though the cause of the derailment that has left 98 dead was not known immediately, sources said the nature and timing shows that the accident was caused by a rail fracture.

However, the exact reason would be known only after an inquiry.
