Safety of women travelling alone in train

Women travelling alone in trains face harassment more  

: Separate ladies bogey and Ladies railway police in each train. more  
Railway budget has proposed abolition of all unmanned level crossings.Instead of abolishing them and causing inconvenience to road users,they can be converted to CCTV controlled gates and operated from the nearest railway station.Existing manned gates also can be converted to CCTV controlled gates and operated from the nearest station without any gate man more  
Many times, all the berths reserved for women in ladies quota are not occupied. These vacant berths are occupied by anti elements, police officers shifting prisoners from one city to another which is really a nightmare for girls more  
there should be women only compartment in train with women CRPF presence
this Compartment should have diffrent color and alarm system must be there at all seats. more  
In railway coaches, you see it painted that 'harassing of women passengers is a criminal offence'. Does it imply that harassment of men passengers is legally acceptable? Personally, I feel that it is far more likely that a woman seeking help gets it than a male passenger. Of course, Sonal is right that women passengers traveling alone do face problems. This is more likely in Ladies' coaches than in General coaches. Ladies should certainly avoid travelling alone in First class coaches since you get locked up in a room with three strangers. A sister of a friend of mine had been murdered in a first class coach for the money and gold she was carrying. (It was long back when Netravati Express was running with the number 6636/6635 between Mangalore and Kurla via SRR,KJP. STILL THE LOGIC IS VALID EVEN TODAY. more
