Gazipur: The five bogies of a goods-laden train were derailed at Pubail Rail Crossing in the city early Wednesday.
Railway police sources said five compartments, including the engine of the Dhaka-bound freight train, veered off the rail track around 5:15 am, suspending the train communication of Dhaka with Sylhet and Chittagong for a while.
However, the communication on Dhaka-Sylhet and Dhaka-Chittagong routes was restored through an alternative rail track, the railway sources said.
Meanwhile, a salvage train has reached the spot and started rescue operation.
