Delhi-bound Trains Affected As Heavy Rain Lashes Gujarat

Heavy rains in Mehsana on late Saturday night disrupted the rail traffic in Gujarat resulting in cancellation of several Delhi bound trains. Several trains have also been rescheduled.

Due to heavy rain, soil erosion was reported from Mehsana at about 12.30 AM on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday. This hampered the movement of the trains. The railway officials say that the incident was reported at 12:30 and the efforts are on to restore the tracks. The railways are arranging drinking water, tea & biscuits for passengers.

The Tracks between Kambli – Siddhpur and Bhandu – Unjha are being restored by Western Railways officials. “The passengers of 12915 Ashram Express were served approximately 850 packets of biscuits, 180 PDW of 1 litre and 500 pouches of water at 6.00am, further 700 samosa and 200 poori bhaji packets are being supplied from MSH and approx 500 poori bhaji packets are being prepared at Siddhpur”, said Pradeep Sharma, PRO Railways.
