THE ENGINE and a bogie of Train No 9322, which had come from Patna to Indore last night, jumped off the tracks while being shunted this morning at 7.45.

The empty train was being shunted from Laxmi Bai Nagar railway station to the pit (service station) situated at Maal Godam when the train jumped off the tracks between platform No 4 and 5. The bogies of this train were to be attached to the express train leaving for Nagpur at night.
