In India, you are safer in a train than outside it

You might have the impression that you are most at risk of crime while travelling by train. 

But data shows otherwise. 

The rate of crimes under the Indian Penal Code on trains for 2015 was 0.5 incidents per lakh travelers, based on around 39,000 criminal incidents against 8 billion passengers carried by the railways.

 In comparison, the overall IPC crime rate for that year was 234.2 per lakh population.
