Mumbai: In a bid to create awareness amongst passengers on how to take care of their belongings, especially at the time of boarding and alighting from trains, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) Kurla and a group of scribes have made a video in connection with the theft of mobile phones at railway stations.

The RPF has appealed passengers to stay alert while boarding and alig-hting from the trains. It has also urged passengers not to travel on footboard.

A scribe who is a part of the video said that this is the third video, which they have made to create public awareness. He also said that the 2.8 minute long video was made within seven to eight hours. The shooting for the same was done on Thursday.

In the video, Kurla RPF senior inspector Suresh Atri is seen appealing to the commuters to be alert for only 30 seconds while boarding and alighting from the train.

Senior RPF officials sai-d that the video was made after analysing the crim-es at railway stations.

The highest number of mobile thefts took place at Thane station and at Kurla station. After thorough interrogation of mobile thieves it was found that non-alertness of passengers was the prime reason for these thefts.

Mr Atri said, “This is being done to create awareness amongst the commuters so that they will be alert about their belongings.”
