Prabhu pitches for seamless policing for security in Indian railways


Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday called for seamless policing to ensure security and safety of the passengers.

Addressing the conference of Director Generals of Police (DGP) of all states on railway security, Prabhu said with the increase in crimes, it is inevitable that the railways will also be its victim.

“Social, political and economic factors also contribute to the crime rate going up; and unemployment, regional disparities and growing ambitions not being fulfilled also contribute to it,” he added.

Prabhu emphasized that there should be a seamless policing.

“There should be a policing which should be in one unified command and that’s how it should happen. I think that’s the challenge the rail needs to deal with,” said Prabhu. More info
