The passenger was carelessly crossing the railway track when the vigilant policeman jumped to save the life of the man.
The police personnel immediately pulled the passenger towards the platform a second before the local train entered the station.
The passenger would get crushed under the wheels of the local train if the on-duty officer didn’t come to rescue him.
After the video went viral on social media, the railway policeman has been receiving a lot of applause for his courageous act.
However, Railway officials have warned passengers several times not to commit such mistakes but people don’t take these rules seriously and put their lives at risk by crossing or walking on railway tracks.
