Ghaziabad: A Varanasi bound train rammed into an autorickshaw when the driver was trying to cross the railway track in Kallugari near here, railway sources said.

Delhi-Varanasi bound Kashi Vishwanath train hit the auto rickshaw yesterday afternoon, 20 kms from here, they said.

The boom gate was left unattended allegedly due to the negligence of cable man Narender Kumar, who did not bring it down to signal the oncoming train, after which the driver crossed, they added.

While the vehicle was ripped to pieces due to the impact, the passengers of the loaded autorickshaw escaped in time and no one was injured in the incident.

The train moved towards Hapur railway station on the Delhi-Moradabad track without delay after the mishap.
