New Delhi: A Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express went off tracks near the Minto bridge in Delhi on Thursday, hours after seven coaches of the Shaktipunj Express derailed in Uttar Pradesh, said a railways spokesperson.

One person was injured when the engine and power car of the Delhi-Ranchi Rajdhani derailed at 11:45am as it was approaching the Delhi railway station, said Neeraj Sharma, Northern Railways spokesperson.

At the time of the incident, the train was running at a speed of around 5 km/hour, he said.

The injured man, identified as Imam Hussain, was taken to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital in Daryaganj, Sharma added.

The derailments of the Rajdhani and the Shaktipunj Express are the first two accidents since Piyush Goyal took over as the new railways minister this week.
