NEED FOR HELPLINE NUM­BER

“The helpline num­ber is one of our pre­ven­tive mea­sures to en­sure that no un­to­ward in­ci­dents take place in the city dur­ing the civic elec­tions. We had launched this helpline num­ber dur­ing the Lok Sabha elec­tions in 2014 but it was de­ac­ti­vated af­ter the polls. We have re­ac­ti­vated this num­ber so that the peo­ple can con­tact us and help us main­tain law and or­der.”

FATEH SINGH PATIL, ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice

CALL FOR AC­TION

The po­lice will co-or­di­nate with the sender af­ter re­ceiv­ing the mes­sage and take the req­ui­site mea­sures as soon as pos­si­ble. “Res­i­dents should con­tact their near­est po­lice sta­tions in case they have some­thing to ex­plain with de­tails. Our teams will reach even the re­mote ar­eas if we get to know about any vi­o­la­tion at any point in time,” said the ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice.
