She may have lost a leg, but is determined to reach PM Modi

Narendra Modi
Indore, May 30: Nishi Kumari, a pharmaceutical company employee from Shimla lost her leg in a train accident at Indore railway station on May 23. She holds the platform responsible for her ill fate and wishes to reach out to the Prime Minister relating her story and the condition of the railway platforms at stations.

As per reports in the Times of India, Nishi, along with her cousin Mukesh, reached platform 5 to catch the Indore-Jabalpur Express to go to Bhopal to meet her sister Surabhi. In a hurry to catch the train, which was pulling out of the platform, she slipped under the wheels of the train and lost her right leg.

Currently under the care of her family members in Room No. 302 of Gokuldas Hospital in Indore, Nishi is determined to write to the PM.

"Eldest of three sisters and two brothers and younger sister Surabhi pursuing BE from a college in Bhopal, she desperately needed the job of quality assurance professional with pharma major at Pithampur, Dhar. She appeared for interview, hours before the accident. We've already spent Rs 2.5 lakh on her treatment. We urge the centre and railways to help us fund treatment of our daughter," her grandfather said.

Nishi, however, is waiting with patience for her wounds to heal before she can write to the PM. She said,"Modi came to power at the Centre largely because of vote of youngsters. I want to write about my pain to new PM. I hear that many more accidents had taken place at Platform No. 5 of Indore railway station in the past due to a big gap between train and platform. It is proving a death knell for productive lives and needs to be brought to the notice of PM."

"We've big hopes from new PM and I feel the letter written by me is taken due care of by him, followed by railway ministry taking necessary steps to ensure that no more accidents take place at platform on Indore railway station," she further added.

Dr Nishant Khare, the plastic surgeon who is treating Nishi informed that she is responding well to the treatment. "Within 3-4 days, we'll go for skin grafting on wound parts of the right leg. In a week or 10 days, she might be discharged from hospital," he said.
