Cuttack, Aug 6:
Normal traffic between Naraj and Dhenkanal was restored six hours after a bogey of a goods train was derailed at Naraj-Marthapur railway station in Odisha’s Cuttack district in the wee hours today.
“We have restored the railway traffic on this route at 9.05 AM after repair,” said SK Choudhury, ADRM, Khordha Railway Division.
Stating that a high-powered technical committee is probing into the derailment, he said necessary action would be taken after the committee submits its report.
According to reports, a goods train carrying coal from Talcher was on the way towards Bhubaneswar when one of its bogies was derailed near Naraj-Marthapur railway station at about 4 AM.
Following information, a team of senior railway officials of East Coast Railway (ECoR) rushed to the railway station for an on-the-spot investigation.
Due to the incident, three passenger trains—Bhubaneswar-Bolangir Inter City, Sambalpur-Puri Inter City and Angul-Puri Passenger— were diverted through Nirgundi.
