In Rajasthan (Rajasthan), a security guard went beyond the call of duty and saved the life of an elderly person at a railway station (Cop Saves Man from Falling Under Train). Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the incident, where an on-duty soldier rescued an elderly man who fell from a moving train. Piyush Goyal wrote in Hindi, ‘At the Sawai Madhopur station in Rajasthan, an elderly passenger was rescued from the grip of the train by taking quick action by the security personnel on duty. We are proud of our security personnel, who are discharging their responsibilities with full service.

In the clip, the policeman is seen walking on a platform next to a moving train, and then suddenly starts running away. A few seconds later, an elderly man can be seen sticking to a window in the train, trying to ensure that it does not fall under the wheels. The elder loses his grip and falls on the platform. His feet get stuck in the empty space between the train and the platform. The policeman immediately comes running and pulls him into the platform.
Quick and timely action by the policemen went unnoticed. As soon as Mr. Goyal posted a video of the heroic act, it went viral on Twitter. The clip received about 6,500 likes, and was retweeted 888 times by Monday afternoon.
Many people praised him and said that ‘Policemen should get respect for such works’.
Sir, Kindly organize a program and appreciate all such acts of Police and other officers by an award recognizing their services. It will inspire others to emulate. Pls also organize training programs using such officers as resource personnel.

I think @RailMinIndia should appreciate this kind of officer with some goods or award which will help promote positive behavior in police department and every railway station will be more secure.

In September last year, government policy thinktank NITI Aayog asked the Indian Railways to install automatic doors in all suburban trains, including the perennially crowded trains of Mumbai. The idea was to investigate accidents due to overcrowding as the doors are usually open.
