The incident occurred between Korari and Achalganj railway stations and the injured included the driver of the tractor and three passengers of the Kanpur bound Rae Bareli passenger train.

According RPF inspector S N Misra, the passengers were standing at the door of the bogey and received injuries in their legs. They were admitted to the district hospital.
