The Railway officials had said that the goods train was carrying an empty container box and the incident happened while the goods train was in a loop line and a single tyre of the goods train had derailed.
Though no injury or major damage was reported in the derailment, the incident disrupted the movement of trains on the section for several hours.
Earlier on June 18, four wagons of a goods train got derailed while it was on its way to a Vedanta Ltd plant in Ambodala yard in Rayagada district of Odisha on Saturday. There was no official confirmation from the East Coast Railway about the incident.
It was on its way to the plant from Ambadola in Odisha's Rayagada on a special route.
