Close shave for passengers as coaches of Ahmedabad-Puri Express roll down sans engine

Titlagarh (Odisha), Apr 08 (ANI): Coaches of Ahmedabad-Puri Express rolled down towards Kesinga side near Titlagarh on April 07 because skid-brakes were not applied. This happened due to non-application of skid-brake on the wheels of the coaches by the staff deployed there.

According to rules, the staff should have put the skids. Railway staff put stones and brought the coaches to halt.

All passengers escaped safe. Two employees who didn't follow the engine shunting procedure have been suspended.

Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Sambalpur has ordered a senior officer-level enquiry consisting of divisional heads of operating, safety, mechanical and civil engineering departments.
