A huge boulder that rolled down from the hills and is lying on the railway track at Dumuriput, which is 13 km away from Koraput, has blocked movement of rail traffic between Koraput and Damanjodi.

Railway officials are trying to remove the boulder by blasting it into small pieces, reports said.

Similarly, mud has piled up on the railway tracks near Machhkund. All trains on this route have been cancelled.
