Documentaries against crime to be screened at railway stations

Faced with increased incidents of crimes in passenger trains, the Railways has decided to play documentary films at railway stations to make passengers alert against such practices.

“The initiative has been taken up by the Government Railway Police (GRP) to help passengers remain vigilant and avoid falling into the lure of fellow passengers with evil intentions in mind,”a senior Northern Railway official told PTI.

The first of the screenings to be held in the capital is scheduled for tomorrow at the Old Delhi station. The two documentary films, one having a duration of 45 minutes and the other 10 minutes, are prepared by the GRP Ambala.

” They will be beamed on a projector at a strategic point in the station complex where it is being screened, “said a GRP personnel of Ambala.

“Old Delhi station will be our first stop in the Capital. Thereafter we will also show the films in New Delhi station,” he said.

He said such screenings have been done in several railway stations in Haryana and evoked an overwhelming response.

The 10-minute film also contains messages of well-known faces like Kiran Bedi, advising passengers on several security related issues, he said.
