Train accident disrupted Sylhet’s rail communications with other parts of Bangladesh, including Dhaka

The rail communications of Sylhet with other parts of Bangladesh will resume by Monday evening, Railways Secretary Mofazzal Hossain said.

The railway communication was halted after a train accident in Moulvibazar on Sunday night, reports UNB.

Six coaches of Dhaka-bound “Upaban Express” from Sylhet veered off the tracks on Sunday night after a culvert over the Barochhara Canal broke down, leaving four people dead and many more injured.

The accident disrupted Sylhet’s rail communications with other parts of Bangladesh, including Dhaka.

A probe body was formed to investigate the incident, Mofazzal said.
