The Kannur-Bengaluru Express had left from the former, in Kerala, at 6.05 PM on Thursday. "On date (Nov 12), at about 3:50 AM, due to sudden falling of boulders on the running train, coaches of Train No 07390 Kannur-Bengaluru Express derailed between Toppuru - Sivadi of (Bengaluru Salem Section), Bengaluru Division," an official release here said."All 2,348 Passengers on board are safe.

The unaffected rear portion of six coaches, along with passengers, was cleared towards Toppuru and further to Salem. The restoration work is in progress. Boulders were being removed with earthmoving equipment, the official said.
"This will be halted at Toppuru. Fifteen buses are being arranged at Toppuru for the convenience of passengers. Five buses are being arranged at the spot of the accident," he said, adding, water and light refreshment have been arranged at spot.
Senior officials are monitoring the situation closely, Hegde said. Buses have been arranged for transporting passengers to Bengaluru, the officials said, adding tea and snacks were provided to them.
