A website for senior citizens to ensure their welfare in the backdrop of increasing crime rate against them has been launched by Mumbai police.
The website titled 'Hamari Suraksha' was launched by Police Commissioner of Mumbai, D. Shivanandan, in the presence of Bollywood actress Simi Garewal and several senior citizens of Malabar area in Mumbai.
According to D Shivanandan, the website has several features, where senior citizen can register the details of their servants with photograph so that Mumbai Police can record their data.
"This is a better software which is very easy to handle and servants registration is a added feature. They can also put their own picture and put their relatives, friends and various others," Shivanandan said.
"If they are in any foreign country, and in case we have to provide them any information, we can use the website and inform them. Their relatives from abroad can also ask us to check about the whereabouts of senior citizens and we will be able to help them. Our beat marshals will go and visit if there is a problem," Shivanandan added.
Several senior citizens present at the launch of the website, appreciated the initiative.
"We don't have to go to people and beg for information. We can get it on our own laptops. It is very useful and we are very thankful for that," said Dolly, a senior citizen.
