Five bogies of the Puri-Hatia Tapaswini Express on Wednesday derailed between Maneswar and Sambalpur city stations, East Coast Railway sources said.

No one has been injured in the accident, the sources quoting preliminary reports said.

The incident occurred around 5.15 am, they said, adding a relief train from Sambalpur station has been rushed to the spot.

Train services have been affected on the route as the railway authorities have cancelled the Sambalpur-Bhubaneswar Inter-City Express and diverted the Bhubaneswar-Kurla Express on another route.
