During the year 2017 (up to November), the Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel of the South Western Railway (SWR) interacted with 9.49 lakh passengers traveled in various trains over the SWR, to understand their problems and to create awareness about modus operandi of criminals and other issues.

This was noted by the SWR General Manager A K Gupta while speaking after inaugurating a two-day soft skills training programme for the RPF staff here recently. He also stated that 505 children and women from different States who were in distress were rescued during first 100 days of 'Operation Nanhe Farishtey'.

'Operation Night Hawk' security system has been introduced to prevent passenger-related offenses and to create fear in the minds of criminals in which special teams escort the vulnerable trains and patrol sensitive stations. On an average, the RPF is escorting 35 trains in the SWR daily. Live train monitoring security system is also introduced, under which control rooms are monitoring and ensuring attendance of RPF staff in trains, Mr Gupta explained.
