Exclamation Head on train collision at Andheri Station - Mumbai

Just got a message saying that there was a head on train collision at Andheri Station. It seems to have happened a few minutes ago. No reports of casualities yet.

It was Virar to Churchgate Local Train.
10-12 passenger were injured.
Officials said that the collision was due to signal failure.

Isn't the signal failure thing going a bit too far in this country. So many accidents in the recent past have been attributed to this. And when a railway minister wants to increase prices to ensure more funds for safety issues, his boss, a former rail minister sacks him, or rather has him sacked. When will this country have people who actually care for the betterment of the nation and not just their vote banks!

No compensation in safety measures. But this one off signal failure I remember. I have not seen any ACCIDENT due to signal failure almost in a decade in Western Railway Locals. Anyone remember any accident incident?
