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.

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.
