A woman railway police officer’s gesture of providing a bottle of milk for a young mother aboard a train is earning her a lot of praise on social media. After the young mother, who was travelling on a Shramik Special train, sought some milk for her infant son the Assistant Sub Inspector rushed home to get some milk for the baby.
The Divisional Railway Manager of Ranchi tweeted about the incident, which took place earlier this week on a train that was going to Gorakhpur from Bengaluru. When the train halted at the Hatia railway station in Jharkhand, the passenger identified as Mehrunnisa, asked authorities if they could arrange for some food for her four-month-old son.
