Railway Protection Force (RPF) of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has started an intensive awareness drive called ‘Meri Saheli’ to respond to any security-related issues pertaining to women passengers on trains. The initiative was first launched on a Dibrugarh-Delhi special train on Tuesday.

A team of woman RPF personnel has been formed for the purpose at Tinsukia division. The team interacted with women passengers at Dibrugarh Railway Station and briefed them about all precautions that need to be taken during a journey. The passengers were informed about RPF’s emergency helpline number (182).

“The mobile number of security control of Tinsukia division has also been shared with the female passengers and they have been requested to dial the number if they face any security related problem in their coaches,” an NFR statement said.

The passengers were also asked to wear face masks in view of the Covid threat. The divisional security commissioner of Tinsukia division supervised the whole process.

“The RPF staff have been asked to conduct regular check and awareness campaigns among passengers in other stations also. The drive is part of an ongoing initiative to facilitate female passengers in an environment in which they feel safe, secure and comfortable during their journey,” the NFR statement added.
