A suicide attempt by a 22-year woman was aborted due to presence of mind of a Central Railway motorman and Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel at Byculla station on Saturday evening.
As per information, the woman made two suicide attempts by standing in front of the train at Byculla.
The first attempt was made at 5.55pm on Kurla-bound slow tracks. However, passengers forced her to vacate the track after they heard incessant honking by the motorman of the on-coming train.
She was brought on platform no. 1 but immediately began to run towards track where CSMT-bound train operates.
She stood there for the on-coming train to run over her. However, the motorman began honking as well as applied emergency brakes after witnessing the scenes on the track.
When the woman showed no signs for clearing the tracks, assistant sub inspector Ravindra Sanap, who had rushed on the track to alert the motorman, pushed her away to safety. Fortunately, the train managed to stop a few inches ahead of her.
