    This facility will be available from 10 pm to 6 am throughout the year, a woman has to call the police helpline numbers 1091 and 7837018555 and make a request for a vehicle.

    According to sources, Rakesh Agarwal said, “We have two dedicated helpline numbers, 1091 and 7837018555, for women’s help. They work 24×7. Women can dial these to get a free ride to their home in Ludhiana. A control room vehicle, nearby PCR vehicle or the SHO vehicle will reach where you are and drop you at your destination safely,” he added.
