The Indian Railways have played the Good Samaritan in the past when it helped a paralysed man travelling to Butati Dham for treatment. Pankaj Jain, a businessman and a JDS youth wing member from Karnataka, requested Ministry of Railways on Twitter to halt the train for more than three minutes and also arrange for a wheelchair for his father.

Replying to Jain’s plea, the train not only halted for more than ten minutes, a wheelchair was also arranged for the patient. Jain thanked profusely later for the help provided.
