During the journey, luggage care and protection is one of the prime concern of the passengers. Due to the crowd, indiscipline and other reasons many times the thieves take advantage and disappear from the scene in no time with the stolen goods.
I have one observation in this regard that if passengers are alert and cautious the thieves cannot take advantage of the situation. Many times it is basically our carelessness that results in these incidents.
As said, prevention is better than cure and if we are attentive and keep our eyes open then these incidents can be minimized. Any new person or new situation is to be seen with doubt and curiosity to find out the real scene behind. There is no question of believing the strangers or getting into their trap.

It is very important to stay safe and prevent any misplacement of luggage or from thefts taking place. If unfortunately, it takes place then the whole of the journey will seem horrible. It is very important that we do not carry lots of cash or valuables during the journey and if we have to then it will be best to separate sources of cash. Also, try to be skeptical of strangers and do not act like too touristy.
Good article describing how to save our luggage while traveling. It's very common that our luggage while traveling by public transport is not safe and we have to make it safe ourselves.
When I used to travel by train, I used to keep all my important things in one bag and used to keep it under my head like a pillow while sleeping at night. It's always safe to tie up all the luggage with a chain and put a lock on them.
