The train driver, whose name was not known, reversed the train for about a kilometre so that the injured passenger, who had fallen from the train, could be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Quick thinking and prompt action by a train driver saved the life of a man on the Kota-bina stretch of Atru-salpura railway line.
The train driver, whose name was not known, reversed the train for about a kilometre so that the injured passenger, who had fallen from the train, could be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The incident took place on the Kota-bina stretch around 4pm on Friday when a 32-year-old man, Rajendra, who was mentally ill, jumped from the train and in order to save Verma, his brother Vinod also jumped from the train.
Giving information about the incident their cousin, Suresh Verma, who was also travelling with them in the train at the time of the incident, said, “My paternal cousin Rajendra Verma works with me in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh (mp) as a labourer. For last five days, his mental condition was not well. On April 24 night, Rajendra was going to Sikar district via Katni town of MP where his health condition deteriorated. So instead of going to Sikar, we (Suresh and his cousins) took train for Jaipur.”
On April 25, around 3am, when the train passed through Ashok Nagar railway station, Rajendra jumped off the train. “I had to pull the chain in order to catch him. I was also fined for this by police. Again, we took a train and left for Jaipur,” Suresh added.
“Next day around 4pm, when train passed Salpura area of Baran district, Rajendra was sleeping on the upper berth of the train. Suddenly, Rajendra got down from the berth and ran towards the gate and jumped from the gate. In order to catch him, his brother Vinod also went behind him and lost balance and fell from the train,” Suresh said.
Senior divisional commercial manager (DCM) of Kota region Vijay Prakash said, “As soon as Rajendra jumped off the train, somebody pulled the chain and the train stopped after crawling a few kilometres. Relatives of Rajendra called for ambulance.”
He added, “As there was no path for ambulance to enter the point where the train had stopped.
“The loco-pilot reversed the train for about one kilometre so that the injured passenger, who fell from the train, could be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.”
Both the men were taken to Baran hospital where they were given treatment. Both of them are stable, Prakash said.
