Noise, traffic, drunk calls: 101 reasons to call cops in Mumbai

Inebriated people desiring to vent their frustration, residents harrowed by noise during festivals, people with a knack for verbal abuse — these are some of the callers the Mumbai police control attends to on a daily basis, with a volume of hundreds of calls at any given point of time.

“Mumbai police receive almost 43,000 calls on an average every day. Of the 43 thousand calls, almost 50 per cent calls are either blank calls, drunk calls, or calls that do not result in any intervention from police or are the result of wrong or mistaken dialers,” said a police source.
