Dhaka-Mymensingh rail link restored

Train communication on the Dhaka-Mymensingh route remained suspended for nearly two hours after a derailment at Dhirasram Station in Gazipur on Wednesday.

Dhirasram Railway Station Master Helal Uddin said the engine of the Dhaka-bound ‘Commuter Express’ train from Jamalpur veered off the track around 10:30am, snapping train communication on Dhaka-Mymensingh route.

A relief train from Joydebpur went to the spot and salvaged the train around noon.

A number of trains were stranded at Joydebpur and Tongi stations after the derailment.

Train communication resumed on the route around noon.
