Two Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) wagons of a train derailed under Jabalpur railway division in Madhya Pradesh, an official said on Wednesday.

The restoration work near Bhitoni railway station of Jabalpur railway division was completed at 4:40 pm on Wednesday, the official said.

The LPG wagons went off the track on Tuesday night when the goods train was on the siding line of an oil depot near Bhitoni station, said West Central Railway Chief Public Relations Officer Rahul Shrivastava.

Since restoration in such cases is done in daylight, the work started early Wednesday morning, he said.

The position of the LPG wagons that got derailed was fifth and sixth of the rake, he said.

''As the incident occurred on the siding line, it didn't affect the train traffic on the main railway lines on the Jabalpur-Itarsi section,'' he added.

The incident comes days after a horrific crash involving two long-distance trains and a goods train in Odisha's Balasore district, claimed at least 278 lives and left more than 900 injured.
