As the video starts, it shows a passenger at Patiala railway station rushing to save someone. Soon, a man appears on the screen, and is being dragged by the train. He clings on to the door of the bogey trying to prevent himself from falling between the tracks and the train.
Constable Singh is seen running alongside the man and his shoes fall off - one on the platform and other one on the tracks. The man then leaves the bogey moments before the train comes to a halt. The RPF official then leaps to pick him up.
The man stands up, picking up his backpack as other RPF personnel rush to the spot. The passengers and their relatives at the platform too head towards the man who just came out of the jaws of death.
Some of the passengers are seen looking at the bogey of the gate of the train bogey which the man was clinging on to.
No other information is available about the incident, or why the man was clinging on to the train. The RFP said used the hashtags #MissionJeewanRaksha #LifeSavingAct in its tweet and also tagged the Railways Ministry and Union Railways minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.
Internet praised the efforts of constable Singh, with may users posting "Salute" on Twitter and other platforms. "Hats off to Raghubeer singh sir," said another user on Instagram.
