The constable saved the life of a man from falling into the gap between the platform and the train while he was trying to board a moving local train.
Shivaji Sutar, chief spokesperson of the Central Railway, talked to TOI about the brave act of the constable.
It was a miraculous escape for the 25-year-old commuter as he was almost slipping into the gap between the train and platform before being pulled away by the RPF staff.
While netizens praised the constable’s timely intervention, they also talked about people’s indiscipline while boarding the trains.
