New Delhi:  A local passenger train heading for Ghaziabad derailed near Okhla in Delhi today, when one of the wheels of a coach came off, officials said.

The Palwal-New Delhi-Ghaziabad train went off the track at around 9:45 this morning. There have been no reports of injuries or deaths.

"Only one wheel came off. The passengers of the derailed MEMU (mainline electrical maintenance unit) were taken onwards by another train," said Nitin Chowdhury, the chief public relations officer or CPRO of Northern Railways.

He added that the divisional railway manager and other senior officials reached the spot soon after the incident.

The reason for the wheel coming off is being investigated, he said.

The incident comes days after the railways reported four accidents, including two derailments, on November 24.
