  • Don’t board
    the middle ladies coach at night

Don’t travel

hours. Prefer ladies compartment right behind the motorman’s cabin, at the
rake’s start or the guard’s cabin, at the rear.
  • Be on your
    guard on these tricky routes

Following are vulnerable sports on the western line, as they are overly exposed to drug addicts and other fringe elements.

pictures of the situation also to this number.  So no need to waste your
time. We can inform the railway officials through above number if we see a

situation. 
  • Stay calm,
    when you smell trouble

Don’t betray
fear when you smell trouble, try to team up with fellow passengers and
overpower the attacker.

the attacker.

    are on the tracks, accurately

Know which
station the train has crossed and which is the next station, Know in which
coach you are travelling so be alert while travelling.
