An FIR has been registered on charges of rape under sections of the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

Two coaches of an empty passenger train derailed in Bihar on Monday, affecting services in the Gaya-Dhanbad division of Eastern Railway for several hours, officials said.

The accident occurred at Paharpur station in the wee hours when the train was going towards Gomo.

No casualty was reported in the mishap. “The train crew immediately stopped the train by applying emergency brakes. Some part of the derailed coaches reached near the up line. This disrupted the train movement,” a senior official of the Gaya-Dhanbad division said.

Train services in that line resumed at around 11 am, the official said.
