Train derails in Gazipur

Three compartments of a train derailed in the Dhirashram area of Gazipur on Sunday night, said authorities.

The bogies of the Panchagarh-bound Drutojan Express train from Dhaka veered off the tracks around 9:15pm, said Joydevpur Railway Junction Station Master Rezaul Islam.

The rail communications between Dhaka and the northern parts of the country have remained suspended due to the derailment, he added.

A number of trains got stranded due to the derailment.

At this time, some passengers were injured while trying to get down from the train, added the master.

The higher authorities were informed to salvage the bogies and the train movement will be normal soon, he added.
