A coach of Hamsafar Express on Tuesday derailed near the Assam-Tripura border, a Northeast Frontier Railway official said.
Nobody was injured when a pair of wheels of the 12504 Hamsafar Express from Agartala to Bengaluru derailed between Churaibari and Kalkalighat stations around 8.15 am, he said.
The train has been taken back to Churaibari in the Assam-Tripura border, the official said.
Senior divisional officers have reached the spot in an accident relief train from Badarpur in Karimganj district of Assam.
A passenger said that since the train was moving slowly there were no casualties, had it been moving at a higher speed, the accident would have been severe.
