Bareilly: A railway accident was averted in the nick of time on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday after the station master of Lodhipur in Moradabad allowed Padmavat Express, which runs from Delhi to Pratapgarh, to go ahead without a green signal, instead of a goods train. After the train had travelled 10 km, railway officials realized the mistake and got the train to stop, before the sequence of trains could be adjusted. The loco pilot and guard of the train, as well as station masters of Lodhipur and Moradabad railway stations have been suspended.
Additional divisional railway manager Sharad Shrivastava said, “It was a human error but not a safety issue. There was some confusion regarding the two trains, Padmavat
Express and a goods train. An inquiry team has been set up to probe at what level negligence happened and who is responsible for that. Meanwhile, we have suspended the loco pilot Vinod Prasad, the train guard Harsh Shrivastava, station master of Lodhipur Manish Sharma and station master at Moradabad Bhupendra Singh.”
According to railway sources, traffic movement was barred for an hour until the Padmavat Express was shifted from a loop line to platform number 2 at Moradabad. Officials said that Padmavat Express was supposed to stop at Lodhipur station, while Cherrapunji special goods train passed it around 12:30 am on May 26. But, by mistake the station master asked the loco pilot and the guard of Padmavat Express to depart although the signal had not yet turned green.
Around 12:45 am the train arrived at Moradabad but on the loop line between platform numbers 1 and 2. Seeing that, the officials at Moradabad were puzzled. They immediately informed the control room in Delhi to stop the traffic. Twenty minutes after it arrived on the loop line, the train was diverted and shunted to platform number 2.
