Officials said the rescue work at the site has ended and clean-up work has begun, with cranes having come to move the train carriages and clear the rail tracks.

"The rescue operation has been completed and now the restoration work on the route is underway," South Eastern Railway's spokesperson Amitabh Sharma told the media.

Nine teams of India's National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have reached the crash site to carry out the rescue and restoration works.
