A train derailed in Uttar Pradesh earlier today injuring more than 40 passengers.
As many as 15 coaches of the 12987 Sealdah-Ajmer Express train derailed while crossing a bridge over a dry canal near Kanpur at 5.20am Wednesday.
Eight passengers are in a critical state, said senior police officer Zaki Ahmed. Two of the coaches fell into the canal bed, the officer added.
Rescue operations are underway, and all the passengers have been brought out of the derailed coach, Railway spokesperson Anil Saxena said.
