Six passengers died and 35 others injured when the engine and five bogies of the Delhi-bound New Farakka Express derailed just outside Harchandpur railway station in Raebareli on Wednesday morning.
Axar.az reports citing Tribune India.
Confirming the six deaths, Uttar Pradesh DGP OP Singh said while all the bodies had been recovered one is stuck under a bogey and had to be taken out.
Among the dead were a woman and two children.
No railway expert is on the spot to give any idea for the cause of the accident. But eyewitnesses say changing the track at the last moment may have led to the derailment.
Two NDRF teams from Lucknow and Varanasi have reached the spot and begun relief and rescue operations.
According to Raebareli Superintendent of Police Sujata Singh, the accident occurred around 6.30 am near the outer gate of Harchandpur railway station.
