A few days back I heard the news that how Passengers travelling on board the Rajdhani Express, from Mumbai to Nizamuddin, were robbed near Kota in Rajasthan. Nine coaches of the train, all AC-2 tier and AC-3 tier, were targeted by the thieves leading to an estimated Rs 10-15 lakh being stolen. I just ignored it like we read it in daily news paper and how I can be affected by it. Yesterday ie 24/08/2017 , I boarded Rajdhani from Ahmedabad to Delhi. There were two fears in my mind , one the recent train accidents and the other one is robbery. But again I thought I would not be the one and took name of babaji and started the journey. I was happy to see the changes in Rajdhani like clean toilets , toilet hand shower , sanitary napkins , liquid soaps, clean coaches with LED installed on seats. So this made me sure that all what I heard was a news and there is an improvement . At around 1 am , I heard few noices. I just woke up and saw a girl fighting with the RPF boldly. When I discussed the matter I got to know that a boy from pantry was opening her bag when suddenly she woke up and he just ran away. What the girl could recognise is just his dress and height in the dim light. She was occupying the last seat where only two seats were there near the door. So the thief must thought off she is an easy target. The matter continued for 1-2 hrs where ROD guys were struggling to identify the thief with the help of the girl but couldn't target the one as no CCTV was installed and he ran away. This can happened with anyone . First of all I congratulate and salute that girl to show bravery in late odd hours . But all her efforts gone into vein as she couldn't recognize and an unnamed complaint got registered.
I would request you all to sign this petition to immediately install CCTV instead of videography method which is done now at the start of the train journey. We are paying almost same amount in Rajdhani as in economy class of flight for that route but this basic necessity of security got missed. Please sign this petition so that immediately CCTV should installed in all the boghies of Rajdhani and other premium trains so that such incidents of thieves, robbery could be avoided and caught on time . COACH was A1 next to Pantry
