After recent incidents of molestations on trains, the government railway police (GRP) and railway protection force (RPF) have instructed officers manning the control room to take all calls from women seriously.

Around 200 additional guards from the Maharashtra State Security Commission (MSSC) have replaced home guards.

Here are the three serious incidents which forced railway police to act:

1. GRP officers registered a complaint after a 22-year-old woman from Bengaluru put up a Facebook post saying a man masturbated in front of her on a local train on June 15. The woman said she called a helpline, but the official who answered laughed it off. The police said they were examining CCTV camera footage of Borivli and Kandivli railway platforms

2. The GRP arrested a 27-year-old man from Bandra railway station for allegedly shooting videos of women at railway stations. The accused said he shot videos of women he found attractive

3. Three days after a woman put up on social media a video of how a man masturbated in front of two women on the Nanded-bound Tapovan Express at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, the railway police identified and arrested him. In the video, one of the women who left Mumbai by the Tapovan Express on June 29, is seen showing the video to a police constable and asking for help.
