KALYAN: A 70-year-old man from Kerala who disembarked from a long-distance train at Kalyan and got separated from his family was reunited , thanks to the alacrity shown by the railway police. The elderly man was part of a group of more than 100 pilgrims who had been on a fortnight's pilgrimage to Kashi, Ayodhya and other shrines in the north. On their way back home to Kerala the man, Krishnan Namboothiri, alighted at Kalyan around 2am on Saturday although the group was supposed to travel up to the destination point at the Kurla terminus before boarding a connecting train to Kerala. His relatives later said they were not aware that he had got off the train. It was only after the train had reached Kurla terminus that Namboothiri's wife and other family members realised that he was missing. A few of the relatives went back to Kalyan and sought help from the station master. Namboothiri's elderly wife and most of the others in the group were told to proceed on their journey to Kerala. A check of footage from CCTV cameras at Kalyan station showed Namboothiri getting off the outstation train. The relatives were told to contact the railway police at Kalyan. Namboothiri's photos were circulated on on various WhatsApp groups of the railway police, said senior inspector Mukesh Dhage. Within a few hours, the railway police at Mulund station got back to say that a person meeting the description of the missing senior citizen had been spotted outside a temple near Mulund railway station on Saturday evening. Namboothiri was reunited with his relatives who took him along and the elderly man is slated to leave for Kerala with the relatives on Monday. Namboothiri, who has never been to Mumbai, has said that he is not aware how he had reached Mulund from Kalyan station, where he got down from the express train. Santosh M, a relative of Namboothiri who lives in Kalyan, said, "He has told us he does not know why he got down from the train at Kalyan and is not even sure how he travelled up to Mulund... But we are thankful to the Kalyan railway police officer Mukesh Dhage who swung into action and helped trace him. We were quite worried for him."
