Bhubaneswar: An alert constable of the Railway Protection Force yesterday turned savior as he saved the life a passenger who accidentally fell from a running train on the 2nd platform of Bhubaneswar Railway Station. The passenger – Nazir Malik, aged about 24 years, from West Bengal, while detraining from running Bhadrak-Bhubaneswar MEMU had fallen between Platform and Train at Bhubaneswar Station and was lifted immediately by on duty Railway Protection Force (RPF) Constable N.
