Machilipatnam-Tirupati Express met with a major accident at Tangutur in Prakasham district of Andhra Pradesh.
The recent incidents taking place in trains in the country are causing panic among the passengers. It is known that the terrible train accident that took place in Balasore, Odisha shocked the entire country. Recently, a fire broke out in a train going from Machilipatnam to Tirupati on Sunday night. The train was near Tanguturu railway station when the fire spread.
Due to this, the passengers became very worried. Immediately alerted and pulled the chain and stopped the train. After that they got down from the train. The alerted railway staff immediately stopped the train and brought the fire under control. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief as no one was hurt in this incident. After about 30 minutes the train left for Tirupati. Further, as the lubricant ran out, it seems that the fire broke out due to friction between the wheels.
Everyone gasped as they said that nothing happened to the train and that the smoke came from running out of lubricant. After 20 minutes the train started again. Even before the tragic train accident in Odisha was over, the passengers were shaken by the smoke coming from the train.
