A massive fire broke out in New Delhi-Darbhanga Clone Special train (02570) near Etawah in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday. The fire broke out when the train was passing through Sarai Bhopat Railway station in Uttar Pradesh, ANI reported.
“There are no injuries or casualties. The train is scheduled to leave shortly,” CPRO, North Central Railways, said in a statement.
“Primarily, it seems that fire broke out due to a short circuit. A few people sustained minor injuries but there have not been any casualties. Efforts are underway regarding resuming the journey of the train,” PTI quoted SSP Sanjay Kumar Verma as saying.
“We somehow got out from the window of the coach when the fire broke out there. There were no proper means to extinguish the fire in the coach. Few people were injured while getting out of the coach,” PTI quoted a passenger who was onboard New Delhi-Darbhanga Express.
