Amritsar: A major train tragedy was on Thursday
averted when the driver of Nanded-bound Sachkhand Express
stopped the train after noticing that two of its bogies had
derailed.

"The train`s driver applied emergency breaks after he
noticed jerks in the engine minutes after the train left the
station here," railway officials said.

The train resumed its journey for Nanded in Maharashtra
after the two bogies were detached, they said.

Meanwhile, a high-level committee has been formed to find
out the reasons behind the derailment of the bogies, they
said.
