Derailment halts Dhaka-Joydebpur rail link

Train communication between Dhaka-Joydebpur route remained suspended for half an hour due to the derailment of two bogies of a train at Dhirasram Rail Station in Gazipur on Thursday morning.

Hanif Ali, station master of Joydebpur Railway Junction, said two compartments of the Dhaka-bound ‘Turag Express’ veered off the tracks at Dhirasram Rail Station around 7:15am, halting train movement for half an hour.

Train movement resumed through the other railway line.

The schedules of Jamalpur commuter train and Dhaka-bound ‘Banalata Express’ were disrupted due to the derailment.

A relief train from the local station reached the spot three hours after the derailment and is working to rescue the derailed bogies.
