7 coaches of Shaktipunj Exp derail in UP, no injuries reported

Friday, September 08, 2017

Sonbhadra (UP): In yet another derailment in Uttar Pradesh, seven coaches of Jabalpur-bound Shaktipunj Express jumped the track today near the Obra Dam station in the Sonbhadra district, officials said.

There was no report of any injury in the mishap, Railway ministry spokesperson Anil Saxena said in New Delhi.

The train, which was coming from Howrah, went off the track around 6:25 AM between Obra and Fafrakund stations nearly 40 km from here, leading to a disruption in the traffic on the Chaupan-Singharauli route.

Sonbhadra, which shares borders with four states (Madhya Pradesh, Chhattishgarh Jharkhand and Bihar), has a history of Left-Wing Extremist activities. But Additional Superintendent of Police Awadesh Singh ruled out any Naxal angle behind the act.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
