The blast, which took place as the train was about to reach Jabdi station, damaged the glass panes in the general coach. After the train came to a halt, smoke engulfed the coach, which caused panic among passengers who rushed out to save themselves.
A thorough investigation is on to ascertain the cause of the blast, Mr Jayant said. He added that a relief train is on its way to the site of the incident.

Last month, the New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express managed to avoid a major accident, averted by the timely detection of damages in the tracks between Mansi and Maheshkut stations and immediate action by railway officials. In January, 40 people died as the Hirakhand Express derailed at Kuneru station on the Odisha-Andhra Pradesh border.
