According to Dr Jayant Panda from the SCB Medical College based in Cuttack, hundreds of people have donated blood for the injured.

"More than 3,000 units of blood were collected since last night in Cuttack, Balasore and Bhadrak," Panda told the media.

The Friday accident is one of the worst train crashes in India and the death toll is likely to rise further, considering the fact that some of the injured passengers are in critical condition.

Media reports said over 3,500 people were travelling in the two ill-fated passenger trains.

The cause of the accident was not immediately known, and a probe has been ordered into the derailment.
