Upgrades Needed: 85% of Calls to 15 Helpline are Pranks


Karachi, Pakistan, Dec 8, 2016 -- Sindh IG Allah Dino Khawaja has ordered the issuance of tenders for developing a modern 15 helpline call centre for the Sindh police.

According to a press statement issued from the Central Police Office, Khawaja has also directed the officers to develop software, with the help of the NADRA database, to counter and detect bogus and prank calls, which not only waste the time of the police officers but also a large amount of revenue is spent while receiving these calls.

According to official data, 85% of the calls received on the Madadgar 15 helpline are bogus or prank calls.

It has been decided that a fine and legal action will also be initiated against prank callers after their apprehension.
