10 Wagons of goods train derails near Delhi’s Sarai Rohilla railway station; One dead

New Delhi: In a tragic incident, a goods train laden with iron sheet rolls going from Mumbai to Chandigarh met with an accident, causing ten of its bogies to derail. One person lost his life on the track. The incident took place on the Patel Nagar-Dayabasti section, affecting the area near Zakhira flyover near Sarai Rohilla railway station in Delhi.

The incident happened when the train was passing under the Zakhira flyover on Saturday morning. An official of Railway Police said 10 bogies derailed in the incident and added that a rescue operation was underway. The seriousness of the situation was swiftly recognised, with railway and fire officials immediately starting rescue operations. Amid the chaos, concerns about possible casualties, especially of individuals who may have been on the tracks at the time of the derailment, added a layer of urgency to the unfolding scenario.

There was an immediate and coordinated response from officials of both the railway and fire departments to the derailment. Teams were quickly dispatched to the site, which was shrouded in confusion and littered with the twisted remains of derailed wagons. The primary objective was clear: to carry out a thorough and efficient rescue operation.

The goods train, now the center of a major rescue operation, had started its journey in Mumbai towards Chandigarh carrying a load of iron sheet rolls. Its route was a frequently traveled one, connecting important industrial centers and supporting the flow of goods that boosted the economy. However, on this day, train travel on the Patel Nagar-Dayabasti section was suddenly and dramatically stopped, near Zakhira flyover. The derailment not only disrupted the train’s route but also raised important questions on railway safety and the mechanisms in place to prevent such incidents. As rescue operations continued, the focus remained firmly on ensuring the safety of individuals who may have been affected by the accident.
