Five bogies detached from goods train engine in Odisha

Balasore: Just a week after an Express train rolled down backwards without engine, another incident was reported from here in Odisha where five bogies were detached from a goods train engine and the train covered a distance of around 2 km.

A major train mishap was averted on April 7 night when 22 coaches of the Express train began rolling down towards Kesinga due to non-application of skid-brake on the wheels by staff concerned. While the coaches chugged along in the opposite direction for around 13 km, alert Railway staff brought them to halt by putting stones on the tracks. The Railway authorities suspended seven officials in connection with the incident.
