New Delhi: Railways on Friday cancelled three
trains and diverted 18 others on the Howrah-Mumabi line in the
wake of the derailment of a Mumabi-bound train in West Bengal.

The cancelled trains are Howrah-Badbil Janshatabti
Express, Howrah-Titlagarh and Tata-Howrah Express.

Railway Board Member (Traffic) Vivek Sahai said it
would take at least 24 hours to restore services on the route.

The trains that have been diverted will run via
Kharagput-Adra-Purulia section and through
Angul-Sambhalpur-Jharsuguda section.

Some other trains like Puri-New Delhi Express and
Bhubhaneshwar-New Delhi 2443 Rajdhani Express have been
diverted via Adra-Gomoh route.

Sixty-five passengers were killed when Maoists
attacked the Howrah-Kurla Gyaneswari Express leading to its
derailment in West Bengal`s West Midnapore district.
