The incident took place around 2am on Tuesday when three bogies derailed
Railway communication with the southern part of Bangladesh has been suspended for nine hours after two cargo trains collided head-on in Kotchandpur upazila of Jhenaidah -- although none was injured.
The incident took place around 2am on Tuesday when three bogies including the engine-bogie of an oil-laden train derailed.
Golam Mostofa, station master at the Safdarpur Railway Station said a cargo train bound to Jessore's Noapara from Chuadanga's Darshana collided with an oil-laden train from Khulna.
The driver of the oil-laden train moved in toward the station without waiting for a signal that led to the collision.
A relief-train from Ishwardi began restoration operation around 6am on Tuesday and rail communication resumed around 11am.
