The derailment late on Saturday has disrupted railway traffic on the route.

According to the railway officials, the iron ore-carrying goods train on way to Visakhapatnam from Bacheli got derailed between Bhansi and Kamalur stations in Chhattisgarh as the tracks had been removed.

Rescue teams were working on a war-footing to restore traffic on the route when reports last came in.

Maoists have announced an anti-repression week from June 26 to July 4. This is the first Maoist incident since they made the announcement.
