Bhopal:

In a heart-warming act, a Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable at a railway station in Bhopal was seen sprinting towards the coach of a moving train to provide milk for an infant.

The entire incident was captured on CCTV.

The infant's mother, Shafiya Hashmi, had asked RPF official Inder Yadav for help when the train going to Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur stopped at the Bhopal station for a few minutes.

However, the train started moving before he could arrange milk for the infant.

As Mr Yadav realised that he was late by a few seconds, he sprinted towards the coach of the moving train, holding his service rifle in one hand and the milk packet in the other.

Ms Hashmi, after reaching her home, thanked Mr Yadav for the help.

The woman said that she could not arrange milk for her daughter and was forced to feed her biscuits with water before the RPF constable came to help.

She also sent the same video to him, saying that he is the "real hero" of their life. Many people took to Twitter and praised Mr Yadav.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal lauded the efforts of the RPF constable, saying he demonstrated an exemplary sense of duty when he ran behind a train to deliver milk for a 4-year-old child.
 

A twitter user, Manoj Saxena, said, "He saved a life. An example to others, we could save so many others if we all can raise to the occasion."

"Hats off to Inder Yadav ji... Salutes to the Guy.....Must be acknowledged duly.... Must definitely be promoted to his next grade," wrote Rajeev, another Twitter user.

Mr Yadav will be the first to get the title of Captain Railways and a cash reward.
