The train on line 1 was standing at the station. Then Mahananda Express, a Khulna-bound mail train leaving Rahanpur on the same line, entered. As the speed was low, the train stopped at a safe distance. Later the train went out through line number 2.Asim Kumar Talukder, General Manager of Western Railway said, ‘Initially I heard that the pointman made a mistake. Even if one train is on the line, the pointman signals another train to enter. A traffic inspector has been assigned to investigate the incident.
