Tabassum, a resident of Ghatkopar Narayan Nagar, Ghatkopar, started feeling strong contractions while she was onboard the LTT-Vishakapatnam express.

Passengers raised an alarm about the emergency. Within no time the Railway Protection Force rushed to the woman’s aid.

According to an Indian Express report, the on-duty Sub Inspector Nitin Gaur, along with RPF women head Constables – Neelam Gupta and Surekha Kadam – pressed into action.

They tended to the ailing mother at the platform and with the help of the Railway Medical Staff, helped her safely deliver the twins, a boy and a girl.

The mother and newborn twins were later shifted to the Rukmanibai Hospital for further postnatal treatment and care.

We salute the entire RPF staff from the women constables to the medical personnel for their commendable efforts.
