A derailed coach has hit a nearby house.

Indian policemen and emergency crew stand next to the wrecage of a train carriage after an express train derailed on the evening of August 19 near the town of Khatauli in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, on August 20, 2017.

A lawmaker from Muzaffarnagar, Sanjeev Balyan, who reached the spot, told media he saw few bodies.

"Twenty-three people have died and 64 others are injured in the accident".

Heavyweight cranes and gas cutters were used to lift displaced and overturned coaches and cut through their tangled remains.

The team of PAC, ATS, and NDRF were rushed to the spot. "Many people are injured but at this point of time we don't have figures about injured or dead in the accident".

The accident occurred around 5.45 pm near Khatauli town, 40 km off Muzaffarnagar.

There are fears some passengers are caught inside mangled coaches and death toll is likely to increase.

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu ordered an inquiry into the train derailment to ascertain the cause of the incident.

In a series of tweets, Mr Prabhu said, he is personally monitoring the situation. The CM also spoke with the Muzaffarnagar district magistrate and instructed him to ensure all possible relief, an official spokesperson had said.

"We are trying to take out the trapped people from the coaches", senior police officer Jitender Kumar told AFP.

A senior Uttar Pradesh official had said in the morning that 156 people were injured.

Some reports quoting locals said the driver of the train was not informed of the fix work that was going on.

More than 20 people were killed in the accident.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has pledged to invest $137 billion over five years to modernize the crumbling railways, making them safer, faster and more efficient.

Indian sprawling railways is the world's third largest network, ferrying around 23 million people each day.
