  • The Bangalore City Police Facebook page is a big hit with Bangaloreans. Police are urging the public to share their grievances online and promise to take action.

The Supreme Court, in its new direction to the state governments and Union Territories, has asked to establish Women’s Helpline in various cities and towns. In light of frequent eve-teasing cases in the city and country, City Express inquired about a possible helpline dedicated for this malaise alone in Bangalore.

The Joint Commissioner of Crime, East, B Dayananda said, “We do not have any separate number dedicated to eve-teasing issues. But people can definitely make use of the number 100 to report such cases.”

Explaining the effectiveness of 100, Dayananda says, “The best option for anyone is to call this number and you will get immediate response. These numbers are also manned by women police personnel and they have access to the movements of the police on Cheetahs in the city. They can immediately alert them and send help where ever needed.”

The police commissioner, Jyothiprakash Mirji have also opened up new avenues like anonymous letters or SMS options for women in Bangalore who are not keen on revealing their identity. Similarly, in a conference, Joint Commissioner of Police Crime (West Division) Pranab Mohanty had reminded about the Facebook page of Bangalore police where any affected woman can upload any complain. He had also highlighted the presence of women desks in all the police stations and the online system of filing complaints. But when City Express enquired about the SMS facility with the Joint Commissioner of crime west, Pranab Mohanty, he stated his ignorance and referred the matter to the control room (100). Suma, an employee in police control room said, “The SMS facility is still on the process. It will be activated in a month or two.”
