Mumbai, August 6: An auto-rickshaw driver decided to take the proverbial "short-cut" a tad too seriously and drove the rickshaw on platform at Virar Railway Station. However, the rickshaw driver won hearts for the reason behind his decision to drive through the rickshaw on the railway platform. It was later reported that the woman's husband boarded the auto-rickshaw outside the railway station and brought it inside after the local train that they boarded to take her to the hospital got cancelled due to water-logging on railway tracks.

When the police caught hold of the rickshaw driver, it came to light that the driver did so in order to help a lady who was experiencing labour pain.
Upon learning the reason and motive behind the rickshaw person's decision, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) arrested him but the court released him with a warning.
