‘Three hoots alert’ for railway passengers

Train drivers will alert the passengers by giving three hoots when the chain is pulled unnecessarily. The passengers should become alert and keep away from the windows, according to press release of Dos and Don’ts by the Government Railway Police (GRP).

Railway Police Superintendent M. Naganna gave a list of precautions railway passengers should observe while travelling on trains. Advising passengers against carrying expensive jewellery and items while travelling, Mr. Naganna said that thieves were using several methods to steal.

Suitcases should be locked and chained to the seats. Women should cover mangalsutram if they open the window for air. He said jewellery should not be put in handbags or purses, because thieves learned to steal them while passengers were sleeping.

Passengers should be more alert when the rush was more because thieves were at their best in crowded trains.
