A day after it was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India’s first semi-high speed train, Vande Bharat Express, ran into some trouble early on Saturday, with officials saying that it was a case of ‘skidding wheels’ which is being looked at by engineers.
The incident occurred around 15 kilometres from Tundla junction in Uttar Pradesh.
The train was coming back from Varanasi to get ready for it’s first commercial run on February 17.
“It was a case of cattle run over due to which there was some problem of wheels skidding. Engineers are looking at it,” said Northern Railway CPRO Deepak Kumar.
After removing the obstacles, the train resumed its journey to Delhi at around 8:15 am, officials said.
