The rail communication between Dhaka and the eastern zone of the country was disrupted temporarily following derailment of three compartments, including the engine, of the Dhaka-bound inter-city train near Brahmanbaria railway station early Mondays.

The Dhaka-bound Turna Nishita Express train coming from Chittagong derailed at Morail rail crossing around 3:45 am, Md Shoyeb, station master of Brahmanbaria railway station, said.

Rail links of the eastern districts including Chittagong, Sylhet, Noakhali, Kishoreganj routes from the capital were restored through alternative line shortly after the disruption due to the derailment, he added.

After the accident, a new engine was connected to the train and it left for Dhaka, leaving the accident-hit three compartments, said station master Md Shoyeb.

Meanwhile, a relief train from Akhaura Loco Shed rushed to the spot and rescued the derailed compartments, he added.
