I traveled to LTT Mumbai from Kolkata on the 23rd of February by Jnaneswai Superfast Express AC first class. My suitcase was stolen from the locked cabin. We were 3 passengers in the compartment. The theft was detected some 15 minutes before Rourkela. A FIR HAS BEEN FILED WITH THE TTE.
HOWEVER THERE WERE NO RPF OR GRP ON BOARD. The RPF blamed the GRP and visa versa. I am surprised how a theft can occur in a first AC.
This is surely shocking.

sad to see that in important trains things like theft are happening...Hope so that FIR filed will yield some positive result.

Agreed, it surely is shocking.
But I guess a lot depends on the sector. Depending on that you need to be extra careful with your belongings.
I personally never use locks in trains, be it any class. But I travel in relatively safer routes.

Unfortunately incidents of thefts are witnessed more for Upper Class Coaches, (There are few incidents of valuables being stolen from 1AC Coach of Nagpur Duronto) and similarly many such incidents are reported in Rajdhani trains as well...

Incidentally the RPF and GRP both mentioned that there were 3 cases of theft on the same train in the same sector. At the time when my luggage went missing, an attempt to steal in the AC2 was foiled by the passenger who was awake. The thief ran two compartments and jumped of. No one dared stop him . It seems these people do carry sharp weapons.

Also,...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
