The Railways Ministry also warned that passengers should not attempt to board or alight a moving train as it can be fatal.
Several netizens lauded the prompt action taken by the on-duty constable, while some also condemned the passenger’s recklessness.
A similar incident had taken place in March, when a passenger had slipped into the gap between the platform and the train at Goa’s Vasco station. Luckily, a RPF personnel was close-by and dragged the passenger out of harm’s way in the nick of time.
