Hearing about Good Samaritans and their actions leaving a positive impact in the world is always refreshing. More than that it gives hope to all in the midst of all the ill-will and tragedy that surrounds us. And the latest Good Samaritan story doing the rounds is about how a guy tweeted to rescue 26 girls from the clenches of human traffickers.
Adarsh Shrivastava traveling in Avadh Express (19040) saw a few girls in the compartment, all troubled and nervous. And what he did next with the help of social media will surprise you all.
As soon as he realized there was something wrong, he took prompt action. Adarsh tweeted about how these girls could be victims of human trafficking and tagged all relevant authorities. This included PM Narendra Modi, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal, and Manoj Sinha along with others.
Check out the tweet he made:
