Rail traffic on the Mumbai-Kolkata route of the Central Railway was disrupted following derailment of 12 wagons of a Mumbai-bound freight train at the Dabki Road railway gate, 3 km from Akola in Maharashtra, early Wednesday morning.
There was no loss of life. The mishap occurred at about 0430 IST, CR sources said.
Of the derailed wagons, 10 are lying on the up track and the rest on the down track, thereby disrupting both up and down traffic, the sources added.
The cause behind the derailment is yet to be ascertained, the CR sources said even as they ruled out sabotage.
Senior railway officials have rushed to the spot to supervise the restoration work.
