Ten coaches of Ranikhet Express derailed in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer, officials said on Saturday.

Train 15014 Kath Godham-Jaisalmer Express derailed with ten coaches between Thayat Hamira-Jaisalmer at 23.16 hours last night, a statement said.

However, no casualties or major injuries were reported, said Railways North West region spokesperson Tarun Jain.

A team of senior officials have reached the spot to investigate the reason of derailment and passengers continued their journey through a special train.

The reason of derailment is yet to be known but prima facie it seems to have resulted from a fault in track, Jain said.
