GUWAHATI, April 30 - Personnel of the Railway Protection Force�s (RPF) Kanaklata Bahini came to the rescue of a teenage girl who was found all alone at the Rangiya Railway Station yesterday.
�Yesterday at about 12.30 pm, the on duty lady team of Kanaklata Bahini of RPF detected a girl who was roaming around alone in a nervous condition on the foot over-bridge on platform no. 1 of Rangiya station.
�As the lady team approached the girl and enquired about the reason behind her nervousness, the girl could not reply properly and started crying,� said Pranav Jyoti Sharma, Chief Public Relations Officer (CPOR) of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR).
The girl was then brought to the RPF post at Rangiya station and on further conversation and counselling the girl disclosed her name as well as address.
�She had some quarrel with her parents and fled her home with an aim to go to her grandfather�s place which is located near the railway station. However, after reaching the station, she could not locate the house of her grandfather, nor could she find out the road to go back home. The RPF, thereafter, contacted her father over the phone number provided by the girl,� said Sharma.
Later, the girl�s guardian came to the RPF post and took possession of the girl after observing the necessary formalities.
�RPF has been successfully rescuing runaway children and youngsters from railway premises. During 2018, the RPF rescued 708 minors and handed them over either to their parents or to NGOs like Child Line after observing all the necessary formalities,� said the NFR CPRO.
