Narrow escape for Rajdhani passengers

Over 300 people travelling at the Rajdhani Express had a narrow escape when their coach caught fire on Saturday.

The incident took place at the Rajdhani Express down in the morning. Passengers in the Coach No 7 suddenly came to notice smokes bellowing inside the coach as soon as the train arrived in Sarupeta station at around 6 in the morning.

When the passengers brought it to the notice of the officials, the train was halted and the entire coach was vacated.

The fire, which was extinguished within half and hour, was believed to have erupted because of technical snags.
