The reason for derailment was due to a rail fracture - a crack that developed due to cold weather conditions. The derailment claimed 9 lives and left hundreds severely injured.
Trains were diverted via the alternate route Bangalore - Bangarpet - Salem. The track was restored back to operation in roughly about 30 hours time.
