Pakistan Railways Awam Express derails

PABBI: Three bogies of Awam Express derailed on Wednesday causing disruption in the movement of trains.

According to reports, two persons were injured in the incident.

Railways emergency teams reached the spot and put the bogies back on track after which the traffic was restored. No reason for the derailment of the bogies has been given.

In January, two bogies of a Karachi-bound train were derailed, as a result of a bomb blast that hit the main railway line near Mangoli area of the Nasirabad district.

According to the police, an improvised explosive device (IED) was planted at the track linking Balochistan with the rest of the country by unidentified men, who detonated it when the Bolan Mail was near the Mangoli area.

While the law enforcement agencies cordoned off the area and have started probing into the incident, owing to the damaged part of the railway track the train service remained suspended for some time following the explosion.
