In Hubballi, the 112 Emergency Response Support System (ERSS) has proven to be a valuable tool for individuals in distress, enabling them to quickly receive assistance from the police. The police, in turn, have leveraged social media to raise awareness about this efficient emergency response system, regularly posting updates about its agility.
On Friday, the Hubballi Dharwad Police shared a post on its social media handle that their Hoysala patrolling team acted swiftly on a call from a member of the public reporting that a youth was harassing girls in the Akki Honda area. Within a mere three minutes of receiving the call, the police arrived on the scene and promptly apprehended the individual, who hails from Desai Oni.
The police have not yet released the suspect’s identity; they have confirmed that he had been persistently harassing two young women.
According to the police, the situation escalated when the girls brought their brothers to confront the street harasser, but the accused himself called the police, presumably anticipating potential repercussions.
The police took him into custody and The Ghantikeri police are in the process of taking legal action against him. The incident serves as yet another example of the effective utilization of the 112 Emergency Response Support System in the region.
