A passenger train derailed in eastern India on Wednesday, killing four people after a blast suspected to have been triggered by Maoist rebels, AFP reports according to a top railway official.

Some 12 carriages of the Rajdhani Express, which was travelling from the capital New Delhi to the northeastern state of Assam, toppled around 2:00 am (2030 GMT) in Bihar's Saran district. Maoist rebels had earlier called for a strike in the area.

"Prima facie, it appears to be a case of sabotage," Railway Board chairman Arunendra Kumar told the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency. "There was a blast on the track, which could have caused the derailment."
