Rail communication of southern region fixed
Pabna, 7 Jan, Abnews: Rail communication of Dhaka with the country's southern region restored after a six-hour of disruption due to derailment of the locomotive of a commuter train near Ishwardi Bypass Railway Station on Sunday, UNB reports.
 
The engine of Chapainawabganj-bound commuter train veered off the tracks near Ishwardi bypass station around 7 am due to poor visibility caused by the thick fog, said Asim Kumar Talukdar, DRM of Ishwardi Junction.
 
Following the accident, Khulna-bound train Sagardari Express and Goalanda ghat-bound train Madhumati Express coming from Rajshahi got stranded at the junction.
