The engine stooped working shortly after the train left the Joydebpur Railway Junction around 10:30 am on Saturday, Station Master Rezaul Islam said.
“The rail communication between Dhaka and northern regions came to a halt after the incident occurred between the district’s Kaliakoir Hi-Tech Park and Mirzapur Railway Station in Tangail.”
The Panchagarh-bound Ekota Express and Dhaka-bound Banalata Express were stuck at Mouchak Rail Station in Gazipur due to the suspension of rail communications.
“Efforts are underway to remove the Nilsagar Express train from the track. Rail communications are expected to resume after the problem with the train engine is solved,” Islam said.
