Train derailment: Narsingdi station master suspended


A station master has been suspended following the derailment of a train in Narsinhdi on Friday night. A four-member committee has also been formed to investigate the incident, Dhaka Divisional Manager Md Arifuzzaman of Bangladesh Railway has confirmed.

 A passerby was killed after the engine of Titas Commuter derailed at Singrhagachha around 8:30pm on Friday.

 More than 100 passengers were also injured in the panic rush after the derailment.
