Delhi High Court Justice Vipin Sanghi called helpline service ‘100’, but he didn’t get any reply.
A PIL has been filed after Chief Justice G Rohini took suo motu cognisance of the issue.
Sanghi also wrote a letter to the police commissioner about the poor response.
In the letter, he said:
“On April 29, when I was on way to Vasant Kunj to attend a wedding reception. There was a big traffic jam and I was stuck for about 40 minutes. Since I could not spot any traffic policeman on the road to manage traffic, I called on 100 number at 10.12pm to inform police about the jam. But,the call went unanswered and despite holding the call for five minutes, there was no answer.”
He further said that any call made to 100 should be answered immediately as it is very likely that it may be called by people in a grave emergency.
He adds, “This is a very serious issue.”
