“Well done, we need this type of responsible and brave person in our defence force,” commented a user. “Well done… Good Job… Due to your effort, one precious life could be saved,” commented the other social media user.
Earlier this year, a Mumbai constable’s swift action saved a seven-year-old boy from slipping into the small gap between the train track and the platform. The constable, who rushed at a lightning speed to save the boy later got rewarded by the Western Railways for his “exemplary courage and humanity”.
