were affected following the incident with the Dibrugarh-Delhi Rajdhani Express, Dibrugarh-Bangalore Express, Dibrugarh-Howrah Kamrup Express and Delhi-Dibrugarh Brahmaputra Mail held up at several stations, a North East Frontier Railway spokesman said.
The spokesman said the accident area was not earmarked as an elephant corridor.
"The Railways maintains speed restrictions of 40 km/hour in areas earmarked as elephant corridors but this particular area between Jamunamukh and Kampur railway stations is not one," the NEFR spokesman said.
Ten elephants have been killed by trains in the state during the month with seven dying in Nagaon district alone.
Two were killed in neighbouring Karbi Anglong and one in Bongaigaon district.

Death of elephants on the few critical corridors has become a regular news, and shall continue to remain the same. It is time to make those critical stretches of rly tracks elevated and/or making large number of underpasses for the safe passage of the pachyderms in danger.

Fencing might not help much. Elephants can easily break fences, and they do it..
