Alert train pilot saves 10 lions

Tuesday, 18 June 2024 | Pioneer News Service | Bhavnagar

The loco pilot of a goods train saved the lives of 10 lions after applying emergency brakes on spotting them on the tracks near Pipavav Port in Gujarat’s Amreli district in the early hours of Monday, a railway official said.

The incident took place when Mukesh Kumar Meena was piloting the goods train from Pipavav Port station to a siding (a short track beside the main corridor), a release from Western Railway’s Bhavnagar division said.

“Meena stopped the train by applying emergency brakes as soon as he spotted 10 lions resting on the tracks.

He waited till the lions got up and moved away from the tracks.

He then took the train to its destination. This commendable work by the loco pilot was praised by officials,” the release said.

Several lions have died in the last few years on this railway line connecting Pipavav Port with north Gujarat.
