Chennai: The Rail Protection Force (RPF) will soon be launching a mobile application for the safety of women passengers, in the wake of Infosys software engineer S Swathi, who was hacked to death by her jilted lover in Chennai.
According to reports, the new application may be launched next month.
A lot of questions were raised after Swathi was murdered by her lover, who had proposed to her but Swathi did not accept.
People were outraged over the administration’s negligence as to how a person could enter a railway station with a knife. In the view of providing justice to Swathi, hundreds of people had protested against the administration and organised a candle march.
The Chennai police had later arrested the suspect Ramkumar, 22-year-old techie, from Senkottai in Tirunelveli of southern Tamil Nadu. The accused had tried to commit suicide when they came to nab him.
Ramkumar, a graduate who hails from Meenakshipuram village, had been staying near the victim’s house in Choolaimedu area in Chennai for the last three months.
The nation was shocked when Infosys techie S Swathi was brutally murdered in broad daylight. She was waiting at the platform of the railway station to board a train when the suspect hacked her to death.
