Goods train derails at Vadodara railway station

Vadodara: Two bogies of a goods train carrying oil to Mumbai from Gujarat Refinery derailed at Vadodara railway station today, briefly affecting the movement of trains on Mumbai-Delhi route.

Nobody was injured in the mishap, the police said. It, however, caused large amount of oil spillage on tracks, the police said.

Meanwhile, Vadodara BJP MP Balkrishna Shukla has demanded a probe into the derailment.

“About 1.30 lakh litres of oil spilled over the tracks and surrounding areas because of the derailment. It is a very serious matter and the guilty should be punished,” he said.

Gujarat Refinery, located at Koyali on the outskirts of the city, is owned by Indian Oil Corporation.
