The whole act of exemplary courage, which inspires all of us, though couldn’t be captured properly in CCTV camera, as the incident happened just under the camera; yet, it was captured partially, which clearly displays the splendid act of courage and alertness on duty.

Passengers are requested not to board/deboard a moving train; it may put life at risk.
