According to a report by news agency ANI, three coaches of a passenger train derailed in Maharashtra's Gondia at around 2.30 pm on Tuesday, injuring more than 50 people. The report said that the accident happened due to a collision between a goods train and a passenger train.

However, no death has been reported in the incident. The train was going from Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh to Jodhpur in Rajasthan. It has been told in the agency's report that this train accident in Gondia, Maharashtra happened due to non-receipt of signal between goods train and passenger train Bhagat Ki Kothi.

According to media reports, the injured passengers have been taken to government and private hospitals in Gondia district. It has been told in the report that both these trains were going from the same direction i.e. towards Nagpur.

Bhagat's Kothi train was going on fire after getting the green signal, but the goods train did not get the signal before Gondia city and it was standing on the track. Because of this, Bhagat's Kothi train collided with him from behind and this accident happened.
