At least nine dead and 45 others wounded as passenger train derails in the eastern state’s Jalpaiguri district, APA reports citing ANI.

Rescuers have found four bodies overnight as they clear the 12 mangled coaches of a train that derailed in India’s West Bengal state, raising the death toll to nine, a railroad official said.

At least 45 people were injured in the accident on Thursday as the coaches went off the rails and three capsized, said Rajiv Jain, a railroad ministry spokesman.

The rescue work was completed and the track was being cleared to restore train services in the region, Jain said on Friday.

All of the injured were being treated in a hospital, senior police officer Debarshi Dutta said.
