B D Moria, Station House Officer of the Government Railway Police Force, said there were no casualties caused by the fire on the Shiv Ganga Express, which was running from Delhi to Varanasi.

“It was loaded with cargo, but we cannot say exactly what was there in the cargo,” Moria said.

Passengers travelling on the train, however, said that one person died due to suffocation.

“When the coach caught fire, everyone jumped off the train, but he (the deceased) was sleeping,” said Rajkumar, who was travelling on the train.

While passengers have been shifted to other compartment of the train, an investigation has been ordered into the incident.

Meanwhile, the train services, which were stopped due to the incident, have been restored. (ANI)
