The rail communications between Sylhet and rest of the country halted on Monday morning due to a hill slide triggered by heavy rainfall in Lauachhara forest of Kamalganj in Moulvibazar.

Sreemangal Station master Faizur Rahman said a large chunk of mud fell on the rail track in Lauachhara hilly area halting the communication since 8:15am this morning.

‘Rail workers were working to clean the rail track. Hopefully, the communication will be resumed soon,’ he added.

Due to the accident, Dhaka-bound Kalni Express stopped at the Vanugachh Railway Station, he added.
