Uttar Pradesh: 12 wagons of coal-laden freight train derail in Etawah


A freight train carrying coal towards Kalanaur in Haryana got derailed on the dedicated freight corridor track between Barthana and Ekdil stations in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, officials said.

Following the incident, Railway and police officials reached the spot and started clearing the debris of the goods train from the railway track. No casualty has been reported in this accident.

Superintendent of Police (rural) Satyapal Singh said 12 bogies of the train were derailed and the coal got scattered around the tracks. Some of the tracks have been damaged owing to the accident.

Officials said the railway's Kanpur-Tundla route has been closed following the derailment.

The incident comes amid a power crisis in the country when powers plants across the country are struggling to keep up with the rising demand of electricity as they struggle with acute coal shortages. It has been alleged that if the track is not repaired on time it may affect coal supply on the line.

On Friday, the railways had cancelled 753 trips -- 363 of mail or express trains and 390 of passenger trains -- in the SCER and the NR railway to facilitate coal freight movement.
