Presence of mind of a Gateman at the level-crossing near VSS Nagar in the city between the Bhubaneswar and Mancheswar railway stations averted a major accident of the Bhubaneswar-Anand Vihar Superfast Express on Saturday. Reportedly, a herd of buffaloes was crossing the railway line a few minutes before the train was supposed to pass through the level-rossing near VSS Nagar at about 12.50 pm. In anticipation about a possible mishap, Gateman AK Tripathy swung into action and showed red signal to the loco pilot, following which the train stopped before reaching the level-crossing.
