Sonbhadra (UP): Two persons died and over a dozen injured in a collision between the Katni passenger train and Varanasi Inter City Express on Wednesday night.


The Inter City Express collided into the passenger train from the rear.

The accident occurred near the Obra Dam railway station in Sonebhadra, 410 km from here, late Wednesday.

Officials said the collision took place when Katni passenger train rammed into Varanasi-Shaktinagar intercity that had halted some distance away from the station as it had not been given the green signal.

Two passengers died on the spot while several others who were seriously injured were rushed to a hospital.
