Dhaka’s rail links with Ctg, Sylhet restored after 10 hrs

Dhaka’s train communications with Chattogram and Sylhet were restored Monday afternoon after 10 hours of suspension following derailment of three bogies of a Dhaka-bound freight.

Railway sources said a container train was going to Dhaka from port city Chattogram and when it reached Rajapur railway station three bogies veered off the tracks at 4am.

Rajapur railway station master Rezaul Karim said the rail communications were restored around 1:45 pm when a relief train from Akhaura station removed the bogies from the tracks.

Rail tracks have been affected by the derailment, he added.
