Trouble began when the special train carrying about 70 relatives of the victims was detained for about 40 minutes to make way for another special in which the Minister of State for Railways, Bandaru Dattatreya, was proceeding to Kurnool.
The anxious relatives were furious that the railway authorities had failed to understand their agony and were neglecting them.
They said it was 12 hours since the train had derailed and the officials were unable to take them to the accident spot.
The SCR had arranged a special train from the capital to take relatives to the spot to identify the bodies.
The departure of the train, scheduled to leave Secunderabad at 7.30 a.m., was delayed by a full two hours. The relatives were at the end of their tether when the train was detained again on reaching Mahabubnagar at 11.05 a.m.
