Mumbai Railway Police has joined hands with Coto, a ‘women only’ social community app, to launch a campaign called ‘Sakhi in Khaki.’
Women commuters can now use the Coto app to report any issues they face during local train travel.
They can post videos, photos or messages about their concerns and Mumbai Railway Police will take immediate action to address them.“We are delighted to associate with a platform like Coto that has the same core values concerning safety as we do.
Through our collaborative effort we aim to build a strong connection with the women of the city and instill the confidence that they can seek our support when faced with adverse situations while travelling by local trains. This initiative is an extension of our continuous endeavour towards the safety of women while travelling in Mumbai locals,” said Dr Ravindra Shisve, commissioner of police, Railways, Mumbai.
Anita Khanolkar, secretary, Mumbai Grahak Panchayat, said, “We envision a future that ensures safety and security of the citizens. This forum encourages consumers to voice their concerns and grievances. Associating with Mumbai Railway Police and coto for this initiative has furthered the organisation’s cause towards extending help and providing support to consumers in times of distress. We look forward to making Mumbai a more comfortable space for women and this is the first step in the right direction.”
