More than 70 lakh individuals in Mumbai rely on the local transport
alternatives to travel to their destinations daily. Out of this wide range,
around 20 lakh are women. An amazing figures out, is not it?
According to the Government Railway Police (GRP) analysis, molestation circumstances
have more than doubled, from 8 last year to 19 until Nov this period. Also, circumstances
of making lewd reviews at females or using unwanted language have gone up from three

journeying in local trains through uniformed police, the question is why such circumstances
happen on everyday basis?
