Whenever we feel insecure travelling in public transport, what do we do about it? We try to avoid the person who makes us feel unsafe but this woman followed a different path, indeed.
Namrata Mahajan, the wonder woman, tweeted directly to our railway minister, Suresh Prabhu that she was feeling uncomfortable during travel because of a co-passenger.
During one fine Thursday evening, she was travelling alone in an outstation train in Maharashtra.
While passing through Shegaon railway station, Namrata felt scared of a male passenger who seemed pretty indecent.
Almost immediately, she tweeted it to our railway minister Suresh Prabhu.
The Central Railway PRO, Narendra Patil told that a senior officer named Ved Prakash, noticed that tweet and contacted him to help her.
They responded promptly,
When the train reached Bhusaval station in 40 minutes, she was immediately attended to by RPF jawans.
The man was immediately shifted to another coach by the jawans.
Here’s how the Twitter responded to it,

The Indian Railway Minister also appealed to passengers to dial the national security helpline number 182 in case of any emergency.
Well done Suresh Prabhu!
