Mumbai: Five coaches of Ambarnath bound Kurla local derailed at Kalyan in Thane district early on Thursday.

According to railway sources, the accident has disrupted traffic on Central line of the suburban railways.

As of now there are no reports of injury.

The derailment took place around 5.53 AM and all train services on Kalyan-Karjat were suspended.

On Wednesday around 20 trains including Ranchi Rajdhani, Kanpur Shatabdi and Gomti Express were cancelled as railway traffic on the Delhi-Kanpur section was disrupted due to the derailment of Sealdah-Ajmer Express near Rura station.

The rising number of train mishaps in recent months has raised several questions about the safety and security of the Indian Railways.
