Northern Railways spokesperson Deepak Kumar said that the fifth and eighth coach of the train derailed between Katghar and Moradabad stations at 10:15 am.
"Safety of passengers is the first priority. The passengers will be shifted to the front portion of the train and it will be moved to Moradabad," he said.
A medical train was also immediately rushed to the spot in case any passenger needed help.
Authorities have also arranged a bus at the site and one at Moradabad. The train will also be moved to Delhi at the earliest.
The lines between Moradabad and Katghar station are twin single line so both up and down traffic will be restored soon.
