Hundreds of students from Supaul, Madhubani, Madhepura and Saharsa districts had reached Bihar Sharif Railway Station by Danapur-Rajgir passenger train around midnight last night to appear for an ITI examination, rail police station in-charge Om Prakash Paswan said.
The students slept on the railway platform as it was quite late, he said.
Around 2 am, the sound of asbestos sheets falling led many of them to believe that it was a tremor, the officer said.
All the injured, who were admitted to Bihar Sharif Sadar hospital, have been released today after being administered first aid, Mr Paswan said.
