Delhi metro is a medium of transportation for many Delhi citizens including people of all age groups mainly the office goers and college students. The trend of pickpockets has been ever increasing in the train making it an unsafe medium of commuting.
Pankhuri Saklani, a student at the Delhi University who found her pocket picked with a loss of Rs. 3000 and ATM card says, "Metro is very heavily crowded these days and as more and more people depend on metro to commute, pickpockets take advantage of it and loot the pockets easily without grabbing attention of people. It's much better to keep all the belongings in a bag and holding the bag tightly if the compartment is full of people rather than keeping in the pocket."
