11 passengers hurt after Rajdhani coaches derail

By The Assam Tribune

NAUGACHIA, May 25 (PTI) - Eleven passengers suffered minor injuries when 14 coaches of the Guwahati-bound Rajdhani Express derailed at Amba halt between Kharik and Naugachia railway stations in Bihar today.

Rail traffic has been disrupted on the section due to the derailment.

East Central Railway Chief Public Relations Officer Dilip Kumar said the derailment took place at village Amba around 6:30 am when the train was on way to Guwahati from New Delhi.

The driver of the train applied emergency brakes after hearing the sound of an explosion on the tracks which apparently led to the derailment, Kumar said.

However, the exact cause was still to be ascertained, the CPRO said, adding that the possibility of sabotage was also being examined.

Police has denied suggestions that it was the handiwork of Maoists.
