Rail traffic was disrupted on the busy Lucknow-Dehradun route after a goods train derailed in Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor district on Saturday, police said. No casualty was reported.

As many as 15 wagons of the train derailed near Chauhra town, some 350 km from Lucknow, subsequently damaging several metres of railway tracks.

"The cause behind the derailment is yet to be ascertained. The operation to restore the rail route is under way," railway police inspector Satish Kumar said.

The train was coming from Moradabad and heading towards Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
