After the felicitation ceremony on Sunday, Sujata, successor of INA’s Laxmi Indira Panda, was dropped at the railway station to return to her native. Travelling alone for the first time, she got confused and took the wrong train that went towards Balasore where she got down.
“I panicked and sat weeping at the station. I thought I would never reach my house again. Thankfully, a youngster came to me and asked me what happened. When I told him the entire incident he contacted the police and railway authorities who helped me reach my village,” said Sujata.
