A brave cop was seen saving a woman and children from coming under a moving train in central India’s Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place at Ujjain Junction Railway Station on May 14.
Visuals, captured on a CCTV camera, showed a child jumping off a moving train followed by another. A cop ran towards the two children to rescue them and pull them away from the train.
A few seconds later, a woman also jumped off the train and was about to slip under the moving train. Fortunately for her, the alert cop was able to pull her away as well.
A man standing inside the train threw a bag on the platform that was collected by the woman who had a narrow escape a few seconds ago.
Speaking to Newslions, SHO RS Mahajan of the Government Railway Police, said GRP constable Mahesh Kushwaha posted at the Ujjain railway station saved a woman and her childrens’ life. The three had boarded the wrong train, 22176 (Jaipur Nagpur Weekly SF Express), and resorted to jumping off the moving locomotive.
