Delhi HC judge dials 100, calls up Delhi Police Commissioner, gets no response; court to hear PIL

New Delhi: Delhi High Court judge Vipin Sanghi has written a letter to Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma complaining about the poor response of police's helpline number 100.

In his letter addressed to the Delhi top cop, Justice Sanghi narrated his "poor personal experience" after calling the police helpline number on April 29, when he was on his way to Vasant Kunj.

According to 'The Times of India' report, the Delhi HC judge in his letter stated that when he was on his way to Vasant Kunj to attend a wedding reception, he got stuck in a huge jam. Seeing no traffic cop on the spot, the judge dialled 100, but his call was not answered.

Judge maintained that it was a very serious issue and requested the Police Commissioner to look into the matter.

Not only this, the Justice Sangh even repeatedly called up Verma, but there was no response from his number as well.

"I tried calling you repeatedly sometime later between 10.27-10.30 pm, but unfortunately, there was no response from your number as well," the TOI quoted judge's letter.

The judge also sent a copy of his letter to Delhi High Court Chief Justice G Rohini and urged her to consider his letter being treated as a PIL.

Chief Justice G Rohini took suo motu cognisance of the issue of distress calls and took the matter as a PIL.
