Kolkata: Less than a month after the horrible train disaster in Odisha, two goods trains collided at Onda in West Bengal’s Bankura district on Sunday disrupting rail operation on the Kharagpur-Bankura-Adra line of South Eastern Railway.
At least 12 bogies of the goods trains jumped tracks following the incident.
There were, however, no report of any casualty or injury, after the collision around 4 AM, sources said. The accident happened after one of the goods trains apparently overshot the red signal.
The train crossed the loop line overlooking the main track and dashed against another stationary goods train at Onda station, sources added.
It might be mentioned that 292 passengers were killed and more than a thousand injured in one of the deadliest train accidents at Bahanaga Bazar station in Odisha on June 2.
