Moulvibazar train crash kills 4, injures over 200

An intercity train derailed at Baramchal in Kulaura upazila yesterday night, killing at least four passengers and injuring over 200 others. Yardous Hasan, OC of Kulaura Police Station, said six bogies of Dhaka-bound 'Upaban Express' train from Sylhet veered off the tracks around 11:40pm after a culvert over the Barochhara Canal, 200 yards off Baramchal Railway Station, broke down. Two of the bogies fell into the canal and one of them overturned, he said.
Sub-inspector Harunur Rashid, duty office at the police station, told UNB around 1:45am on Monday that they recovered four bodies from the spot.
The injured were taken to Kulaura Health Complex, Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital, Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital and some local hospitals, he said.
The accident also snapped Sylhet's rail communications with other parts of the country, including the capital. On information, firefighters and police rushed in and conducted the rescue operation, said officer-in-charge of Kulaura Government Railway Police Station Md Abdul Malek.
