Agartala, 26th August 2023 : In a harrowing incident, a demonstration train destined for Sabroom in the southern district of Tripura had a narrow escape from a potentially disastrous accident on Saturday. The heart-pounding event unfolded at approximately 11 am, sending shockwaves through both the passengers and railway authorities.

The train commenced its journey from Agartala Railway Station at 10:50 AM, en route to Sabroom. However, just moments after departing from Sekerkot railway station, a bag of stones appeared on the tracks, leading to an alarming collision with the train’s engine.
