If you lose your mobile phone anywhere in Ghaziabad or in case it gets stolen, you don’t need to rush to a police station to register a complaint, you can now do it online also.
Ghaziabad police has started an online directory where one can register lost complaint for mobile phones. The complainant needs to fill up a form asking details about the phone such as its model number, make, IMEI number, as well as date and time of the incident.
The link of the directory is available on Facebook page and Twitter handle of Ghaziabad police. The directory will come under direct supervision of SSP Upendra Kumar Agrawal and SP (city) Shlok Kumar.
In recent times, the areas of Sahibabad and Indirapuram have seen an exponential rise in mobile theft or loss cases. Over 1,100 such cases are pending with the police.
Mobile theft or loss cases usually rate low on the priority list for police, because of which many cases are not even reported.
Kumar said the initiative would help in efficient tracking of mobile phones and their recovery rate will improve. “We are most of the times so busy with crime cases that mobile theft cases get neglected. But the number of unsolved cases keeps adding up. It is an online directory and people can file a complaint from their home also,” he added.TAGS: mobile phone theft / Ghaziabad / Ghaziabad police / online complaint
