The guard coach of the Jammu Rajdhani derailed on arrival on Thursday at the New Delhi Railway Station at 6:20 am. No casualties have been reported so far. The coach was located at the end of the train. “Last coach of Jammu Rajdhani Express which was entering at platform no 15 of New Delhi railway station derailed around 6.20 a.m,” Neeraj Sharma, Northern Railways spokesperson told news agency IANS.

On September 7, the engine and power car of the Ranchi Rajdhani Express, which was on its way to Delhi, had derailed at the Shivaji Bridge just before it set foot into the New Delhi Railway Station. No casualties had been reported as the train had been moving at a relaxed pace. One person had been reported injured.

Hours before the Ranchi Rajdhani Express accident, seven carriages of the Shaktipunj Express had jumped track in eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Sonbhadra district. No loss of lives had been reported. Officials had said that as the speed of the train was 40 km per hour, it was possible to prevent injuries.

On August 19, as many as six cars of the Puri-Haridwar Utkal Express had fallen off track in eastern UP’s Khatauli. The incident had claimed the lives of more than 20 people and left almost 80 dead. The accident, which happened at 5:45 pm, saw some of the coaches crash into a house located close to the tracks.

This is a developing story. More details are awaited.

      The railway is a most corrupt organization made by past UPA govt when this organization is used as grazing field by different parties prized by Manmohan govt for support for his govt when corrupt leaders like Laloo, Mamta, Ramvilas Paswan etc were given railways to loot railways which crippled economy and working badly. The corruption reached its peak at that time. So it is not an easy task to run this railway smoothly unless drastic steps are taken to flush out corrupts by dismissing and convicting them for accidents and mishaps as most of the employees are corrupt and irresponsible. The railway minister should work hard sincerely and honestly to gear up working of defunct railways.
