Yesterday on Saturday, a RPF constable saved a woman passenger from falling into the gap between a running train and platform at Bhubaneswar station.
The passenger was identified as Nibedita Sahoo , a lecturer of Rama Devi Women’s University Bhubaneswar. She fell into the gap of the running train and platform while she was trying to board Puri-Sambalpur express 18304 for Dhenkanal. She was running to attend her engagement ceremony.
It was Subrat Maharan’s presence of mind, that he immediately lifted the woman from the gap and saved her life. It is routine duty of RPF to check departure of every train.
Nibedita Sahoo expressed her gratitude to the on duty RPF constable for saving her life. She was feeling well and do not have any internal injury
