Bhubaneswar: Even though an amended law of Good Samaritan has been enacted and Government has guaranteed legal immunity to the saviour of victims of accident, irrational attitude and sadist mindset of our so-called civilised society is yet to mend ways.

Such a deplorable act has been ironically witnessed even in India’s numero uno smart city which is famous for its rich cultural heritage as ‘Temple City’ besides being the capital city of Odisha and also well-known internationally as the Land of Lord Jagannath and the sacred soil that could have even transformed ‘Chandashoka’ (devilish Emperor Ashoka) into ‘Dharmashoka’ (saintly Emperor Ashoka) thousands of years ago.

Fifty-two-year-old Rajiv Nayak, son of Laxmi Narayan Nayak, hails from Khallikote in Ganjam district. Presently he is staying up at Rasulgarh-based Pala Mandap in this city.

Rajiv was on his way to Khallikote when the mishap took place. He was boarding the Bhadrak DMU. The train reached Bhubaneswar station at 10.57 am on Monday.

An agonised Rajiv lamented, “I was about to board the train from the platform when my chappal slipped and I fell down. People there instead of helping me, got amazingly busy photographing for 15-20 minutes.”

A train bogy sweeper Sakina Khan informed, “He was ignorant of the train on motion. When he tried to climb up, he slipped and fell into and the unfortunate incident happened. Shockingly, the onlookers on the platform here kept on video-graphing for half an hour.”

Later on, the GRP rescued him and rushed to Capital Hospital where he is undergoing treatment.
