ISLAMABAD: Top leaders of the Raiwind Tablighi Ijtima on Monday met Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa, a spokesperson for the Pakistan Army said.

"Notables of Raiwind Tablighi Ijtima met COAS," the Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations, Major General Asif Ghafoor, wrote on Twitter. "Army chief offered Fateha for departed souls of tragic Tezgam train incident. Also prayed for early recovery of the injured," Maj Gen Ghafoor added.

More than 70 people had been killed and scores of others injured in a horrific

train accident late last month when cooking gas cylinders had exploded near Rahim Yar Khan's Liaqatpur area.

The Tezgam train was on its way from Karachi to Rawalpindi when the gas cylinder carried by a passenger had exploded, with the fire destroying three carriages, including two economy - and one business-class carriage.
