Police say the death toll has jumped to 63 after 14 coaches of a passenger train rolled off the track in northern India.

Daljeet Chaudhary, a director general of police, says railway police pulled out more bodies from the mangled coaches that fell on the side after the train derailed around 3:10 a.m. Sunday.

More than 120 others have been injured.

The derailment occurred near Purwa, a village near the industrial city of Kanpur, when the 14 coaches jumped the track.

Some coaches crumpled as they crashed into others, trapping hundreds of people inside.
