Ajmer-Ahmedabad Express Engine Derails, No Damage

Traffic on the Marwar-Palanpur section under North-Western Railway was disrupted today after the engine of Ajmer-Ahmedabad express train derailed in Sirohi district.

The incident occurred between Swaroopganj and Bhimana railway stations, NWR PRO Tarun Jain said.
