In view of the in­creas­ing in­stances of drug and sex­ual abuse, the city po­lice along with the HEART (Help­ing to Ed­u­cate, As­so­ci­ate, Re­ha­bil­i­tate and Teach) Foun­da­tion opened the free cell for vic­tims in 2014

It elicited a good re­sponse from city res­i­dents and sev­eral drug abusers at­tended the coun­sel­ing ses­sions.

The ses­sions be­came ir­reg­u­lar af­ter a few months and at one point, peo­ple stopped com­ing there.

Prashant Khaire, deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (zone 1) said, “A sep­a­rate cell ex­clu­sively for coun­sel­ing drug and sex abusers plays a cru­cial role in any city.”
