Steps to bring down crime rate in running trains

Hundred more police personnel will be deputed to prevent crimes in running trains in northern districts, including Chennai and Tiruvallur, according to C. Sylendra Babu, Additional Director General of Police, Railways.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, he said that incidence of crime at railway stations and trains in southern and central districts including Tiruchi and Madurai has been brought down. The crime rate was higher in northern districts when compared to southern districts. A number of steps would be taken to bring down crimes in running trains. It has been decided to strengthen the police personnel at railway stations. More than 100 policemen would be deputed to northern districts shortly.

Mr. Babu said that irrespective of the suspected place of occurrence of a crime, station heads of railway police have been clearly instructed to register complaints from the affected passengers at the stations, where they have alighted.

If a train passenger lost his bag or other valuables while travelling from Chennai to Tiruchi, he could lodge a complaint at the railway police in Tiruchi.

The same system would be followed in other routes too. The affected passengers should not be allowed to undergo an ordeal in filing their complaints. If they faced undue delay in getting their complaints registered, they could bring it to the attention of the ADGP, Railways, IG or DIG and senior officials.

Earlier, Mr. Babu inaugurated an eye check up camp conducted for railway police personnel. He himself volunteered to check his eyes and also interacted with the police personnel.
