VISAKHAPATNAM: Freight traffic on Kothavalasa-Kirandul (KK) railway line was suspended on Sunday following the derailment of a goods train between Kirandul and Bacheli due to removal of about 30 meter stretch of the track by cadres of CPI (Maoist).

Three engines and five empty bogies fell off the tracks as the train driver could not notice the absence of the track nor the crew did have any prior warning.

As a consequence, all goods trains that were to pass through the KK line are being diverted to Koraput-Rayagada section for on Sunday. However, Visakhapatnam-Kirandul passenger train was terminated at Koraput.

Track restoration work is going on, according to official sources. Railway police personnel have been posted at sensitive points along the KK line to prevent any untoward incident.
