Mumbai RPF men save youth from coming under a train at Dadar railway station

Mumbai: Prompt action by three Railway Police Force (RPF) personnel saved the life of a Bangladeshi national on Saturday evening at Dadar railway station as they saved him from coming under a train. The personnel rushed him to a civic-run Sion Hospital, where he is being treated for his head injuries sustained during the incident.

According to the sources, the incident took place on Saturday evening when the 21-year-old Bangladeshi youth, Hamid Jeval, tried to board a crowded Thane-bound train from Dadar platform number 4. Jeval, who could not get on the train and was hanging on the door, tried to jump out in a backward direction as the train started moving. Suddenly amid the crowd, Jeval fell down and was being dragged down under the train. As he was at risk of getting stuck between the moving train and platform, other passengers tried to help him but to no avail. Looking at the panic, three RPF personnel, PI Magare, PI Shinde and constable Tapole rushed to his rescue and pulled him out of the gap. However, Jeval, who fell with a thud, sustained a serious head injury and was bleeding profusely. The three RPF personnel immediately rushed him to the civic-run Sion Hospital. Jeval is being treated at the hospital for his head injury and a few bruises sustained during the fall.

Dadar railway police have made a diary entry of the incident, and are trying to track down his family with the help of the passport and other documents.
