According to officials, coach C5 caught fire due to a short circuit.

One bogie of Dehradun-bound Shatabdi Express caught fire Saturday but no casualty was reported, police said.

The train’s bogie caught fire near Kasro railway station when it was coming from Delhi, Uttarakhand police chief Ashok Kumar said, adding no one, however, was killed or injured in the incident.
