Rail chief's denial of blame is not good enough

Yes, Prapat, you cannot be expected to know everything that goes on at SRT, since nobody there knows anything that goes on anyway.

But, when approached for answers, your immediate response should not be denial. You should say you are not fully aware of the facts, but your people are cooperating with police and you will get to the bottom of this.

But it appears "deny everything" seems to be the most common response.

Reminds me of a few years ago when the son of a famous politician allegedly murdered someone in a bar fight. When reporters interviewed his father, he said that it could not have been his son since he was still upstairs asleep. Meanwhile, on another TV station, his son was telling everyone it was self-defence.
