02 March 2015, Nirapad News: The rail communication of Sylhet with Dhaka and Chittagong has been cut off after a Chittagong-bound oil-laden train derailed near Rashidpur railway station in Habiganj.

Shayestaganj Railway Station Master Jahangir Alam said four compartments of the train veered off the track around 7 am on Monday.

“The accident suspended Sylhet’s rail communications with Dhaka and Chittagong routes,” he said. The rescue operation would be started soon after a rescue train from Akhaura would arrive, added the official.
