Ankit Rai poses near the spot where he lost his arm. In 2007, six-and-a-half-year old Ankit was kidnapped from a playground near his home. After a frantic search was launched for the missing boy, his kidnappers dumped him in the middle of two railway tracks, thinking he was dead. A speeding train ran over his arm. But Ankit survived. After gaining consciousness, Ankit lifted his amputated arm and somehow found his way home. The kidnappers who had demanded a ransom of Rs 7 lakh were caught later and turned out to be tenants in the family’s house. Ankit’s courage earned him the National Bravery Award in January 2008.
