Two persons were killed and six others injured when two coaches and engine of the Guwahati-bound Capital Express derailed in north Bengal, with initial investigations suggesting that the driver overshot the signal. An inquiry has been ordered into the derailment and three railway employees, including the driver, have been suspended in connection with the mishap.
The train travelling from Bihar's Rajendra Nagar Terminal derailed at around 9 PM last night near Shamuktala Road station, about 32 km from Alipurduar Railway Division headquarters, NF Railway officials said. Initial reports had said that 10 persons were injured. Two bodies were found from the coaches and they appeared to be those of monks going by their clothes and footwear, NF Railway CPRO Pranav Jyoti Sharma

said.
Though prima facie cause of the accident was overshooting of signal by the driver of the train, a thorough inquiry will be conducted and action will be taken against the guilty, said a senior Railway Ministry official. Divisional Railway Manager, Alipurduar, Sanjiv Kishore said three persons - the driver, assistant driver and guard of the train have been suspended. He said work is on to remove the derailed coaches from the track.
Rail traffic, which had been stopped in both up and down lines in a diverted route, is being gradually restored, he added. About 150 of the stranded passengers were taken back to Alipurduar Junction by Kamakhya-Alipurduar Inter City Express. The unaffected portion of the train was detached. The train will resume journey once the relief operation is completed, he said.
The Accident Relief Train reached the site of the accident at 10 PM with railway doctors and relief materials and started rescue operations.

BY OUR STAFF REPORTER

made the announcement while laying the foundation stone for the project of doubling of railway line from New Bongaigaon to Kamakhya via Goalpara town and the doubling of railway line from Digaru to Hojai at a glittering function held at the RPF Parade Ground at Maligaon. He also laid the foundation stone for the much-awaited railway electrification project for Raninagar Jalpaiguri – Guwahati via Rangiya railway line and flagged off the first passenger train services on the 10 kilometre Karimganj – Maishashan newly converted broad gauge section in Barak Valley.
Prabhu said construction of the elevated tracks connecting Kamakhya and New Guwahati would decongest city roads, free up railway land and enable railways to develop Guwahati station as a commercial hub. He also said the new projects would keep provisions for connectivity with the proposed metro rail system.
Speaking at the function, Assam Governor Banwarilala Purohit congratulated NF Railway team and the Railway Minister for their success in starting many projects in the Northeast on time.
While thanking the Railway Minister for his initiatives in development of rail network in the Northeast, Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal emphasized on speedy completion of all railway projects in the State. He also requested the Railway Minister to take up construction of railway lines so that every district headquarters of the State is connected by rail. The Chief Minister also requested Prabhu to initiate steps involving the Railways for skill development of the youth of the region.
The 10-km track between Karimganj and Maishashan was converted into broad gauge as part of the Lumding–Badarpur–Silchar gauge conversion project. Only a 30 km stretch between Baraigram and Durlavchera still remains to be converted into broad gauge, but the Railway Minister said this portion would also be converted into broad gauge by May 2017. Two pair of new trains – 55686/55685 Silchar–Maishashan Passenger & 55662/55661 Karimganj–Maishashan Passenger will start operating from tomorrow, he announced.
The doubling of 176-km long New Bongaigaon–Kamakhya railway line was sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 2,232 crore. The section will have 18 stations where construction of new station building and yard remodeling would be taken up.
The doubling of 102-km long Digaru–Hojai railway line was also sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 871 crore. The section has 15 stations. The doubling of Hojai to Lumding section had already been sanctioned for which the Railway Minister of State Rajen Gohain and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had laid foundation stone on September 12 this year.
The project for electrification from Raninagar Jalpaiguri to New Bongaigaon and then from New Bongaigaon to Guwahati was entrusted with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The RVNL will execute the project on turnkey basis at a total cost of Rs 655.55 crore.
The function was also attended by Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain, General Manager of NF Railway Chahatey Ram, General Manager of NF Railway (Construction) HK Jaggi, Chief Managing Director of Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) SC Agnihotri, other senior railway and RVNL officials and a host of invited guests.
