Staff Reporter,

The dial 100 service of the state police will now be available on WhatsApp as well. The service will be of use in emergency situations when making a call becomes difficult for the victim wanted to pass on any information to police.


There are situations when the complainant becomes unable to make call owing to presence of anti-social elements around. Several other instances also create a barrier in reaching the service such as a busy line or noise in the area. Network congestion and other such issues too play a barrier in the
situation.


The MP Police hence came up with the plan of introducing WatsApp facility to the service which will be available twenty four hours and seven days on 7587600100.
The complainant across the state can drop their name, address, location and the details of concerned
police station on this watts app number. Police assistance will be made available on the same number by the department.
