It may be recalled, heavy rains that lashed Wardha and Nagpur had disrupted the train traffic as the ballast under the Railway track and bank including minor bridge was washed out away completely between Sindi and Tuljapur station on Nagpur–Wardha section of Nagpur division. The disaster of a sort triggered a terrible chain reactions as dozens of trains were either cancelled or diverted or terminated at the specific stations and resumed their journey back to the originated stations.

The disaster created a hell of a situation for thousands and thousands of passengers as they either found themselves stranded at Nagpur Station or had to go to the several stations of diverted trains. This nightmarish situation forced hundreds of passengers to cancel tickets, other hundreds went through ordeals of boarding trains from diverted routes thus making them feel in hell.
