“Mumbai police shuts down special helpline for women. Here’s why
A helpline launched after the alleged rape and murder of Esther Anuhya has been shut by the Mumbai Police. The helpline — 9969777888 — was launched on Women’s Day in 2014
A helpline launched after the alleged rape and murder of Esther Anuhya has been shut by the Mumbai Police. The helpline — 9969777888 — was launched on Women’s Day in 2014. The helpline facilitated the tracking of the mobile phone after registering the number through SMS.
Since its inception, the number hasn’t received a good response from women users. In nine months, only 1,266 texts were received by women, which dropped to 389. Now, seeing that its Twitter handle was getting a better response, they have shut the helpline.”
