New Delhi:  Alert pantry staff of the Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani Express averted a major tragedy on Monday and saved hundreds of lives when three coaches of the train caught fire.

Now, making mockery of their bravery, the Railways has awarded just Rs 3000 to 19 pantry workers, which works out to Rs 158 per person.

A major fire had engulfed three coaches. Railway authorities said the fire was reported to have begun in the pantry car and spread to two adjoining coaches, B6 and B7.

There were about 900 passengers including Railway staff in the train, but not a single passenger was injured because of the alert and brave pantry staff.
