News : Drugs Helpline Number Switches Off
Mohali, India, Sept 4, 2014 -- Just a month after the police launched a helpline for residents to give information leading to arrest of drug peddlers or any illegal activity related to narcotics smuggling, the number was found to be disconnected.
TOI dialled the number, "814601234" for more than seven days and found it was switched off.
Deputy commissioner Tejinder Pal Singh Sidhu, during the launching of the helpline number in July, had said, "Knowledge and education among residents about drug abuse should be spread. Besides, help from panchayat, social service groups and youth clubs is also needed." SP Harpal Singh had said that with this number, the police had nabbed more than 25 drug peddlers in less than month. The police, however, now believe that the helpline was not required.
Mohali SSP Inder Mohan Bhatti said, "The purpose of the number was solved. So, we discontinued it." But Vikas Bhardwaj, a high court lawyer, disagreed. "A number that has been started for public use must remain in use as it will be helpful for the police department to solve crimes," he said.
