Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani Express engine, coach derail

Second in a day: Now, two coaches of Ranchi Rajdhani Express derail in Delhi

The engine and power coach only have derailed near Shivaji Bridge.

The incident took place at around 11.45 am. The Delhi bound Ranchi Rajdhani was changing tracks to reach its scheduled platform at the New Delhi Railway station when its engine and generator van derailed. An inquiry has been ordered into the incident.

Sunil Udasi, the Chief Public Relations Officer, Central Railway was quoted by PTI as saying, "Two wagons of the goods trains derailed in Khandala this afternoon". The train was moving very slowly and stopped suddenly.

This comes just when the Indian Railways is already facing a lot of heat for repeated incidents of derailment. "No injury to any passenger", said CRPO.

Earlier in the day, seven coaches of Howrah-Jabalpur Shaktipunj Express skid off the railway track near Sonbhadra, Uttar Pradesh. No one was injured in the accident and passengers were moved to remaining, undamaged coaches of the train and left the spot an hour after the mishap.

This is the third derailment of the day.

On August 19, the Utkal Express had derailed in Muzaffarnagar district, killing 22 people and injuring 156.

Three days later, nine coaches of the Delhi-bound Kaifiyat Express had derailed in the Auraiya district, leaving around 100 passengers injured.

Newly appointed Railway Minister Piyush Goyal personally monitored the situation after the derailment of Shaktipunj Express.
