Due to similar instances in the past, both railway officers and government police personnel were ordered to patrol the railway-lines that were most susceptible to weakened safety for women.

Due to the current elections, patrolling officials were not at the designated posts and this will change from now on. The presence of these patrol men have been known to reduce the number of crimes in these areas in the past.
