After Buffaloes, Now Vande Bharat Express Hits Cow

New Delhi: Day after hitting the herd of buffaloes, the Vande Bharat Express on the Gandhinagar-Mumbai route now hit a cow close to Anand station in Gujarat on Friday. It only dented the train’s front bumper and the service was stopped for 10 minutes, according to the officials.

The just-launched semi-high-speed train — capable of running 160 kmph — hit four buffaloes on its way on Thursday. The services were halted for eight minutes on Thursday. However, the buffaloes died.

According to Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, such collisions with cattle are unavoidable and “this has been kept in mind while designing the train. Its nose on the front is totally replaceable,” said the minister earlier on Friday.

It may be recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had flagged off the Vande Bharat Express and travelled in it from Gandhinagar to Kalupur railway station in the Gujarat capital Ahmedabad.

Today’s collision point was near Anand town, roughly 100 kilometres from Gandhinagar and more than 400 km from Mumbai. The collision took place slightly before 4 pm.

“The train’s front portion has suffered a small dent,” the chief public relations officer of Western Railway, Sumit Thakur, said.
