The rail communication between Khulna and Jessore was suspended as a locomotive derailed at Singia Railway Station in Jessore this afternoon.
The road communication also remained halted for two hours because of the accident, but later resumed after the derailed locomotive was cleared off from the road.

The accident also left the Jessore-Khulna highway blocked, he added.
Moniruzzaman also said this third incident of locomotive derailment on the same spot in last two months.
Though road communication resumed in the area, the GRP official could not confirm when the rail communication would resume.
