Trains delayed after cargo train derailed near Nawabshah

May 17, 2019
Rail traffic has been suspended

Fourteen bogies of a cargo train derailed Friday morning between Nawabshah's Bharya Road Station and Padidan. 

There were no casualties in the accident, according to SAMAA TV correspondent Ayaz Dhari.

However, other passenger trains had to be stopped because of the accident. This caused massive delays on both sides of the tracks.

Around an hour and a half after the train derailed, rescue teams arrived at the scene. Work is now under way to right the bogies.

According to Railway authorities, the cargo train was travelling from Karachi to somewhere in Punjab.
