In another train tragedy, ten coaches of 15014 Kath Godham-Jaisalmer Ranikhet Express derailed in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer area on Friday late night, officials said on Saturday.
The incident happened between Thayat Hamira-Jaisalmer Jaisalmer at 23.16 hours last night, a statement from Indian Railways said.
However, no casualties or major injuries were reported, said Railways North West region spokesperson Tarun Jain.
A team of senior officials have reached the spot to investigate the reason of derailment and passengers continued their journey through a special train.
The reason of derailment is yet to be known but prima facie it seems to have resulted from a fault in track, Jain said.
