Rajkot: An inquiry has been ordered into an incident where a driver of Saurashtra Janta train stopped the train 5 km ahead of the scheduled stop today, which could have caused major accident, railway officials said here.

The incident took place when Saurashtra Janta Express (9017) was on its way to Jamnagar, they said.

According to railway officials, the train was to stop at Billeshwar crossing to get green signal for clearance, but instead, the driver stopped 5 km after the crossing.

Negligence of the driver could have led to a major accident when the train had passed five km without getting green signal near Rajkot junction here, railway officials said, adding that luckily there was no other train on the track.

Kamlesh Tiwari, senior official of the Western Railway Rajkot division said an inquiry has been ordered and strict action would be taken if any one found guilty.
