With messages being flooded to the WhatsApp helpline number of the Cyberabad Police Commissionerate post the brutal gang-rape and murder of veterinarian, Disha on November 27, the helpline number was blocked by the WhatsApp.
Cyberabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar took to Twitter to confirm the same and to announce the new WhatsApp number of Cyberabad Police."We are now using 7901114100 for receiving citizens' grievances temporarily," read his Tweet.
With the old number being familiar with the public to register their complaints, the Cyberabad Commissionerate officials have sent an email to the WhatsApp and requested them to activate the number.
The old WhatsApp number has received a flood of messages following the gang-rape and murder incident of 26-year-old Disha by four people at Shamshabad on the city outskirts. This location comes under the limit of the Cyberabad Commissionerate.
