Cool Gurkha singlehandedly defeats 40 bandits

Man of legend! Even platinum87 would think twice before taking on this guy!
Bishnu Shrestha, a brave Gurkha soldier in Indian Army, defeated 40 train robbers while returning home after a voluntary retirement. The Indian army, is going to awarded Bishnu with Sourya Chakra, Bravery Award and Sarvottam Jeevan Raksha medals during the Indian Republic Day celebration on January 26.

While in the train, Maurya Express from Ranchi to Gorakhpur, on September 2, 2010, 35 year-old Bishnu saved a girl about to be raped by the train robbers in front of her helpless parents.

After looting the train, when the robbers started to strip a 18 year old girl in front of him, he couldn’t contain his calmness. He took out his khukari and took on the a group of 40 robbers, alone. In the fight, he killed three of the dacoits and injured eight others. Remaining dacoits fled the scene to save their lives.

poor girl and parents! Horrible to see such a thing.

200 mobiles and 30 laptops. Sounds like they weren't armed, should've just beat them down with their keyboards.

In the UK the soldier would have been done with murder and court martial-ed. Good on him though, must have been a gutsy move.

It wouldnt be, because for all the issues the UK has, trains being robbed by 40 robbing rapists are not one of them.

Don't talk soft. He had reason to carry the weapon and it was reasonable self defence. He'd be a hero just the same and no jury would convict him.

Don't borrow more than you can repay. This goes for everyone, the government included.

indeed!

Quote:
“The girl cried for help, saying ┤You are a soldier, please save a sister┤,” Shrestha recalled. “I prevented her from being raped, thinking of her as my own sister,” he added. He took one of the robbers under control and then started to attack the others. He said the rest of the robbers fled after he killed three of them with his khukuri and injured eight others.

During the scuffle he received serious blade injury to his left hand while the girl also had a minor cut on her neck. “They had carried out their robbery with swords, blades and pistols. The pistols may have been fake as they didn┤t open fire,” he surmised.
If the pistols were fake (and apparently this is not uncommon in India) that would explain a lot. OTOH, I suspect there are few people in this world capable of using a firearm effectively in cramped conditions against a rage-fuelled Gurkha...

Kukari sounds like kukri which means chicken in punjabi. Therefore, these bandits were beaten with a chicken.
