The engine of a Dhaka-bound commuter train derailed in Gazipur halting Dhaka's rail link with northern districts today.
The incident took place at the outer signal on the south side of Dhirashram Railway Station around 10:45 am on Wednesday.
Later, a rescue train came from Joydebpur and the train movement resumed at around 12 noon.
Joydebpur Railway Junction Station Master, Md Shahjahan, said, "The Dhaka-bound commuter train from Jamalpur left Dhirashram station at around 10:45 am and crossed the outer signal area when three wheels of the train's engine derailed. As a result, train communication between Dhaka and northern districts was halted. Four trains were stuck at different stations on both sides."
