Dwarka: As cyber crimes have been on the rise, senior citizens of Dwarka are being made aware about online frauds and crimes to keep themselves safe and secure.
Seniors Hub Dwarka (SHD), a registered NGO for elderly men and women, is carrying out the initiative in association with Dwarka Police.
A meeting of the executive committee of SHD was organized at Rajasthan Apartments in Sector 4 in this regard. In the meeting, the members discussed the future plan of how to reach out to the maximum number of senior citizens of Dwarka and get them to register with Dwarka police.
Ravi Jaitely, General Secretary of SHD and a resident of Harsukh Apartments in Sector 7 said, “For online crimes, an awareness series on how to prevent online fraud in association with Apeejay School of Management is included. The idea came into mind when Apeejay conducted a virtual talk on Cyber Crime for Seniors Hub members.”
“Further, it was decided that we should encourage members who are staying alone to get themselves registered with the Senior Citizens Cell of Dwarka Police. We have taken the responsibility of submitting the forms with the police collectively,” he added.
Jaitely said that the idea was shared with the members and the eligible members had submitted their forms, which are under submission with the respective police stations of Dwarka Police.
“With this, we will coordinate with Dwarka Police and the members will be saved from the hassles of running around the police stations,” he said.
