Five bogies of an Amritsar-bound passenger train were derailed near Jalandhar railway station in Jalandhar on Tuesday, railway police sources said.

Five coaches, including an AC bogie, of Amritsar-bound Tata-Muri Express were derailed this afternoon, they said.

"The incident occurred before the train entered the platform. No casualties have been reported so far since the train was running at a low speed," they said.

They attributed the ongoing work on the railway tracks to be one of the reasons behind the mishap.

Meanwhile, railway officials have reached the spot and an inquiry has been ordered into the incident, they said.
