As soon as the passengers came to know about the incident, someone pulled the chain and the man's relatives called for an ambulance. However, the ambulance was not able to reach the destination as the way was blocked by the train.

According to senior divisional commercial manager (DCM) of Kota region Vijay Prakash, as quoted by The Hindustan Times, "As there was no path for ambulance to enter the point where the train had stopped, the loco-pilot reversed the train for about one kilometre so that the injured passenger, who fell from the train, could be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment."

Both the men were taken to Baran hospital where they were given treatment.
