Goods train scrapes off platform roof at Jajpur Road Station

Jajpur: Platform No-3 at Jajpur Road Station was damaged after being hit by a coal-laden goods train last night.

As per reports, a coal laden goods train passing through platform no-3 of the station came in contact with the GI sheets of the platform roof. As a result three GI sheets were ripped off while others were dislodged.

Panic spread among the passengers waiting at the platform following the loud noise during the mishap. However, no causalities have been reported, said sources.

Public Relations Officer (PRO) of East Coast Railway, Nirakar Das said “The platform No-3 was built quite a long time back and is lower in height. Therefore the overloaded train hit the roof of the platform resulting in the mishap. The train was immediately stopped by the authorities and not much damage was caused.”
