A major train mishap was averted on Tuesday after official patrolling railways tracks in Bihar's Khagaria district detected a damaged track and alerted the train driver just before the New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express was to pass through the area.

The official placed a detonator and ran with a banner flag to stop the train.

The train proceeded after the fractured railway track was repaired by the engineering staff of the railways.

The incident took place at around 8 a.m. this morning.
