Nagpur News : Two bogies of a goods train derailed and fell on the parallel railway tracks on Sunday near Mominpura area in Nagpur badly disrupting the rail traffic. The Bilaspur bound goods train started from Gadchandur and was carrying cement bags while the accident took place. However no casualty was reported in the incident.
