Ranchi, July 22: Heavy rain lashed the state capital today, inundating several areas and swamping railway tracks.

Movement of several trains was affected, though the situation was not as alarming as it was in Jamshedpur when it experienced record rainfall in a day in June.

The Ranchi-Lohardaga railway tracks at Ranchi Junction were waterlogged.
