Bangladesh Railway authorities have formed a four-member probe body to look into the incident of derailment of intercity train Rangpur Express.

Secretary of Railways Ministry Md Mofazzel Hossain confirmed this to media on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier on the same day, some eight bogies of the Rangpur Express veered off the tracks near Ullapara Railway Station at Ullapara upazila in Sirajganj around 2:00pm.

The engine and four derailed compartments caught fire as oil tank of the train exploded.

The railways secretary said, “The fire might have started from an electric short circuit.”
