If you or your fellow passenger are in trouble while travelling via train now you can send
message through WhatsApp Helpline number. The number is 9004499718. You can send
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 child unaccompanied of somebody travelling with a child in a suspicious 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.

  •  Lodge a complaint
Don’t lazy to lodge a complaint in the police station within 30 days of the incident. Because
CCTV cameras will store the details only for 30 days.

Activate the GPS features of the smart phone while travelling, for easy identification of your
location by RPF officials.

  •  Inform authorities about drunkard and druggies

Keep an eye out for drunkards and druggies. Inform the authorities are vita.

  •  Take a mental picture of the devil

Get the devil out of the details, so you can easily explain the detail of the wrongdoer to
the authorities. During the peak hours only CCTV details are not enough for identifying
the attacker.

  • Know where you 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.
