In a startling incident this morning, the Charminar Express, en route from Chennai to Hyderabad, derailed at Nampally Railway Station. The mishap occurred around 9:15 AM, sending shockwaves through the busy railway hub. Initial reports suggest that over 10 passengers were injured, with three coaches of the train derailing from the tracks.
According to railway authorities, the loco pilot failed to observe the dead-end line, leading to the derailment of the train coaches. Passengers who were positioned near the doors suffered minor injuries during the incident. Emergency services were swiftly deployed to the scene, with injured individuals being rushed to nearby hospitals.
The South Central Railway promptly responded to the accident, assuring the public that all passengers were safe. The official statement from the railway authorities confirmed that several individuals sustained minor injuries. Rescue operations are currently underway, with additional details expected to emerge as the investigation progresses.
Rakesh, Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) of South Central Railway, shed light on the circumstances surrounding the accident. He explained that Nampally Railway Station serves as a terminal station where trains conclude their journey. Ideally, the train should have come to a halt before reaching the terminal point. However, due to the oversight of the loco pilot, the train overshot its intended stop, resulting in the derailment of three coaches.
The injured passengers are currently receiving medical attention at the Railway Hospital, and authorities are working diligently to ensure their well-being. The incident has prompted a thorough review of safety protocols and operational procedures to prevent such occurrences in the future.
As the investigation unfolds, passengers are advised to stay informed about any potential disruptions to railway services in the affected area. The authorities have assured the public that every effort is being made to address the situation promptly and efficiently.
