Comilla, Jan 13: The rail communications of Chittagong with Dhaka and Sylhet resumed after six hours of suspension following a collision between a Demu train and a truck at Banasua in Sadar upazila here on Saturday.
The accident took place around 8:45am when the sand-laden truck hit the Comilla-bound Demu train at an unauthorised level-crossing, said Shafiqur Rahman, the station master of Comilla Railway Station.
Following the collision, the wheels of the train veered off the rail tracks, he said.
Three Dhaka-bound trains, including 'Subarna Express', got stranded at Comilla Railway Station following the derailment.
