Film on the 'Biscuit Bandits' of Indian trains


Send to Friend
Beware of the great train robbers, says a new documentary film in India - a country that has the largest railway network under a single management.

Called "Biscuit Bandits", the film has been made by the NGO Gandhian Youth for Peace Trust and Rural Development, a voluntary organisation in Tamil Nadu.

The film, released by the trust Wednesday, will be screened all over India by the railways.

It had earlier been screened by the Southern Railway and Senior railway officials watching it were stunned.

K.K. Pande, the additional general manager and director of public grievances, who released the film, said it will be used by Indian railways extensively to create awareness among the travelling public about how robber gangs dupe passengers on the trains.

The film, in DVD form, will be shown at railway stations, a Southern Railway release said.

Many train passengers, especially on trains to and from Chennai, have
fallen victim to robber gangs who offer passengers biscuits and sweets
laced with sedatives. They then rob them.

The four-minute documentary will be shown in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. The CDs of the film are also being dubbed in Punjabi and Marathi, the makers said.

The documentary was produced with assistance from AVM Productions.
