Now, two coaches of Ranchi Rajdhani Express derail in Delhi

It is the third derailment in Uttar Pradesh in less than a month.

No casualty or injury has been reported so far.

Central Railway spokesperson Sunil Udasi told IANS, "Two wagons of the goods train derailed near Khandala Monkey Hill area around 3.55 p.m". The reason for the derailment was also not yet clear.

The derailments of the Rajdhani and the Shaktipunj Express are the first two accidents after Piyush Goyal took over as the new minister of Railways this week. "We are in the process of clearing the tracks".

One coach and the engine of Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani Express derailed near Minto bridge here on Thursday, making it the second rail derailment of the day, media reports said.

Railway officials said the driver of the Ranchi Rajdhani heard a cracking sound just as the train was changing tracks after which the engine and generator bogey were derailed. The incident occurred near Obara around 6 am.

Earlier in the day, seven coaches of the Jabalpur-bound Shaktikunj Express derailed in Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh. At least seven coaches of the Shaktipunj Express came off the tracks.

And on August 19, 14 coaches of Utkal Express derailed in the same state, killing at least 24 people and injuring over 150 others.

Three days later, nine coaches of the Delhi-bound Kaifiyat Express had derailed in the Auraiya district, leaving around 100 passengers injured.
