Kanpur: Twenty-five people sustained minor injuries when five coaches of the Howrah-New Delhi Poorva Express overturned near Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh early on Saturday. A total of twelve coaches of the train derailed in the incident, PTI reported.
The train was going to New Delhi when the incident occurred near Rooma railway station — about 20 kilometres from Kanpur — in Kanpur Nagar district around 12.50 am. Four out of the 12 derailed Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches have overturned, North Central Railway public relations officer Amit Malviya said.
12 coaches of LHB rake of Poorva Express from Howrah to New Delhi was derailed yesterday .
Tilldate ,our Indian Railways informed that the LHB coach rake won't be derailed more than one coach on its run.The coupling arrangements never allowed to derail the trailing coach.
IR should be reconsidered the ICF modified coupling coaches rather than these LHB coaches which also derailed 12 coaches.
thank god it was LHB
If ICF, it wold have been worse.
IR never said that more than 1 coach will not derail. It says that 1 coach will not crash/climb on to another coach. Had it been ICF, there would have been too many casualties. LHB is much safer.
