The railway ministry has done it again. 19-year-old Radha Lohar's life was saved. The teenager was allegedly being taken against her will to New Delhi from Hyderabad for work, according to a report on Tech Time. The girl alerted a co-passenger about her situation through a written letter in a notebook.
In the letter, Lohar wrote that she was a student in 10th standard, an orphan from the district of Alipuduar in West Bengal and that she was with the people against her will and did not want to the work that she was being forced to do.

The Ministry's twitter handle immediately responded within the hour
According to Tech Time, a spokesperson for the Indian Railway Ministry said that the girl has been taken under the protective custody of Pratham, an NGO.
The Indian Railways Ministry has been quite pro-active on social media and have been lending help wherever they can. They rescued a lady passenger who was being threatened by her co-passengers and handed out food to young hungry school children who were stuck on a train that way delayed due to fog.
