Several wagons of two goods trains derailed following a collision between the two locomotives near West Bengal’s Bankura on Sunday, June 25, at around 4 am in the morning. 

One of the goods trains hit the other from behind, causing 12 wagons of the goods trains to derail.

According to reports, there were no casualties, however, the driver of one of the goods trains suffered minor injuries in the accident.

According to a statement by railway officials, “Both were empty goods trains and the reason of the accident and how both trains collided is still not clear. The train services in Adra division have been affected by this accident. ADRA Division serves four districts of West Bengal viz. West Midnapore, Bankura, Purulia and Burdwan and three districts of Jharkhand viz Dhanbad, Bokaro and Singhbhum and it comes under the south-eastern Railway.”

The incident comes just a month after a horrific triple train collision, involving the Coromandel Express and two other trains, in Odisha claimed at least 275 lives.
