A fire swept through a train car packed with sleeping passengers in southern India on Monday, killing at least 47 people and sending panicked survivors rushing for the only clear exit once the train stopped, officials said. Investigators found charred remains of victims still in their sleeping berths and were struggling to identify them. A railway station worker noticed the burning coach as the overnight train from New Delhi to the southeastern city of Chennai passed through the town of Nellore at about 4 a.m. said local official B. Sridhar. Nellor is nearly 310 miles south of Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh state.
