Indian Railways retrieves man’s gold chain that was flushed down toilet 10 6 99
During his two-decade-long career with the Indian Railways, station master Anil Kumar Shukla has helped passengers in multiple ways. He has now added retrieving a gold chain from poop to his list of accomplishments.

Shukla, currently posted at the Yeola station -- about 35 km from Shirdi and 260 km northeast of Mumbai -- got a call on July 16, informing him that a passenger had dropped a gold chain in the toilet of a train passing through his station.

“It was an unusual call, no doubt about that,” laughed Shukla when contacted by PTI.

So, the chain, they realised, had fallen through the hole in the Indian style toilet at Yeola station.

It was then that station master Shukla received his second “unusual call” in as many days.

Informed that the chain was somewhere on the tracks of his station, Shukla, along with his staff, scoured an area of around two kilometres. To compound matters, it was also raining heavily that day.

And then he spotted something jutting out of the pebbles.

“We used a wire to pull it out. Yes, it was dirty and covered in filth, but nothing a good wash couldn’t get rid of,” he said.

A heavy-duty wash under a tap at the station later, the chain finally made it to the hands of its very persistent owner, three days after it went down a black hole.

It is, however, not clear if Patil wore the chain immediately on its return!

But what’s known is that the effort that went into locating the chain wasn’t quite a waste.
