The explosion of a gas cylinder is not the reason for TezGam Tragedy, however, short circuit air-condition brings a large number of tragedies: Eyewitness
Railway Minister, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed declared that owing to the explosions of two gas cylinders, this saddened incident occurred. Most of the fatalities were caused due to jumping from moving train, Shiekh Rasheed says.

On the other hand, Eyewitnesses say that the cause of the fire in the train was not a gas cylinder explosion but a short circuit.
The fire started in an air-conditioned boogie where no cylinder was allowed to be taken; from last night there was a burning smell in the boogie while the train stopping chain was not functional.
