New Delhi: Railway tracks in and around Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh were damaged due to heavy downpour in the past weeks.

The strong current of flood waters from the river near by washed away the land where the train tracks were built on.

Authorities are conducting restoration works in the area.

Last month, hundreds of rivers in Uttar Pradesh were in the state of havoc as several districts and villages were submerged in flood water. Ballia, Varanasi, Sonbhadra, Allahabad, Ghazipur and Mahoba districts were most affected areas in the North Indian state.
