Displaying an ultimate act of courage and alertness on duty, AB Sikdar, a RPF head constable at Tinsukia Division saved the life of an old man while boarding/deboarding 15603 Guwahati – Ledo intercity express at Tinsukia railway station.

The incident took place at Tinsukia railway station platform no. 2 on December 11.

A mishap was about to happen when the old man was trying to board the train to collect his luggage which he forgot. While trying to get in, he slipped and was dragged with the train up to some distance.

Seeing this, head constable AB Sikdar reacted promptly and ran to pull him out and saved the passenger from fatal injury.

The whole act of exemplary courage, 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.
