9 coaches go off track in 2 derailments in UP, Delhi;1 injured

Two wagons of a goods train derailed at around 3:55 pm near Khandala in Maharashtra even as the Railways was dealing with two derailments which happened earlier on Thursday

In another incident, the engine and power coach of the Rajdhani Express coming from Ranchi in Jharkhand to Delhi derailed near Shivaji Bridge Railway Station (formerly Minto Bridge) while approaching the New Delhi Railway Station.

This is the fourth incident of derailment in less than a month. Earlier today, Rajdhani Express derailed in Delhi and Shaktipunj Express derailed in Uttar Pradesh (UP). "All passengers are safe and no casualties have been reported", said Anshul Gupta, DRM, Northern Railways.
