Last month, a fire broke out on New Delhi-Darbhanga Superfast Express, affecting three of its coaches, near UP's Etawah.

The initial probe pointed to a short circuit as the cause of the fire.

The police officials said that when the train was passing through the Sarai Bhupat station, the station master had noticed smoke in the sleeper coach.

The station master then stopped the train by informing the train driver and guard about the smoke.

Several passengers jumped out of the train as soon as it caught on fire.

In June this year, Coromandel Express crashed into a stationary freight train at Bahanaga Bazar station in Odisha's Balasore district in which 293 people were killed and over 1,200 injured. The CBI had filed the chargesheet against three railway employees in connection with the Balasore train accident.
