Following a slight collision with a herd of buffaloes in Gujarat on Thursday morning, the recently launched Mumbai Central-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Express sustained minor damage, according to officials. Around 11:20 a.m., the incident took place between the Gairatpur and Vatva stations. According to a railroad spokeswoman, the collision damaged the engine's front end. " three-four buffaloes suddenly came on the way of Mumbai-Gandhinagar VB (Vande Bharat), damaging the nose made up of FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic)."

The spokesperson said no functional part was damaged in the incident. "The train moved just after removing carcasses (within 8 minutes) and reached Gandhinagar on time. The incident occurred at 11:18 between Gairatpur-Vatva station. The Railways is trying to counsel nearby villagers not to leave cattle near the track." Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the semi-high-speed train on September 30.
