Six coaches of Puri-Haridwar Utkal Express have derailed on Saturday near Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. The accident left many injured and reports of deaths are also coming.

It is not first time that problem related to tracks have been reported from Muzaffarnagar. Earlier on June 11, a school master had seen that track was broken.

The school master showed red ‘saree’ to stop a passenger train and hence stopped an accident.

The chances of sabotage is also in the reckoning.
