Following the incident, the East Coast Railways has canceled 12 trains, diverted routes of eight others and short terminated another, added officials.

Bhubaneswar: The six coaches of the train were carrying wheat and plunged into the river around 2.30 am. However, the loco pilot and other staff were reported to be safe as the engine remained on the track, they said.

Heavy rain in the wake of a deep depression in the Bay of Bengal is likely to have caused the accident on a bridge over river Nandira when the goods train was on its way from Firozpur to Khurda Road, the officials said. Talcher recorded 160 mm of rainfall on Monday followed by Angul (74 mm).
