    Express Train Collides With Goods Train In Maharashtra’s Gondia; 2 Injured

    Gondia (Maharashtra): Two persons sustained minor injuries after four wheels of a coach of an express train on its way from Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh to Rajasthan’s Jodhpur derailed in Gondia district of Maharashtra after it hit a goods train from behind in the early hours of Wednesday, the Indian Railways said.


    The incident occurred around 1.20 am between Gudhma and Gondia railway station according to a statement by the South East Central Railway (SECR).


    The Bhagat Ki Koti Superfast Express Train (20843) hit the brake van of a goods train which lay ahead of it due to which four wheels of a coach of the passenger train derailed.

    There were no casualties and two persons who sustained minor injuries were treated in the ARME and they left on the same train, a Railway official said.


    “We have an automatic block signalling system where trains move one after the other. The driver waited for two minutes seeing the red signal and then moved cautiously, as per night protocol,” said Manninder Uppal, DRM Nagpur Division, South East Central Railway.


    “However, the goods train was still stationary and he applied emergency brakes. Only two people sustained minor injuries. The track was not damaged,” he added.
