New Delhi: The engine and five coaches of Mumbai-Nagpur Duronto Express derailed on Tuesday morning near Titawala, around 40km from Mumbai.

As per initial reports, people have been injured but no casualties have been reported. Till the filing of this report, Indian Railways didn’t confirm the news or any details.

A railway official, on the condition of anonymity, said, “As per our initial reports, we think the derailment was caused around 6-6.30am and since the area is receiving a lot of rainfall, soil on tracks could be one of the reasons.”
