Patna: A train arriving from Jammu on Friday morning jumped off its track causing several cars to be derailed during the shunting process at the Rajendra Nagar Terminal.

{gallery}newsimages2017/may/051217{/gallery}A number of bogies of Archana Express derailed when the train was being shunted near Lohanipur Kaath Pul after dropping all of its passengers at the Rajendra Nagar Terminal. Since the train was empty, no one was said to be hurt in the incident.

While the cause of the derailment is under investigation, the accident knocked down a power pole breaking overhead cable in the process.

Officials said that since the accident occurred on a shunting track, there was no disruption in the normal railway traffic at Patna Junction.

Workers were already on the site at the time of reporting to put the cars back on the track and repair of the power pole was to begin within hours, Danapur Division Railways Manager Ramesh Kumar Jha said.
