Shivpur Police Station in-charge Sunil Patel said Ajit (35), a resident of Bhadohi in Uttar Pradesh, fell off a Mumbai-bound train at Ravan Peepal village close to Pagdhal railway station Saturday morning. "A Dial 100 First Response Vehicle got information about the incident around 9:30am but could not reach the spot of incident as the terrain is hilly. Constable Billore and the FRV driver Rahul Sakalle ran to the spot. Billore, with help from Sakalle, then carried Ajit on his shoulder to Pagdhal railway station," he said.
From the railway station, Ajit was taken to a health centre in Seoni's Malwa area and then shifted to Hoshanagabd district hospital because his head injury was severe, Patel told PTI. "Ajit is out of danger according to doctors treating him. Billore's timely response saved Ajit's life," Patel said.
