GUWAHATI, June 23 - The Assam Police will soon introduce a free mobile phone application for women in distress, through which an SOS alert could be raised for police to react at the shortest possible time.

The application would be developed in line with the Delhi Police�s mobile application �Himmat� as part of which a QR (quick response) database for all the private cabs and other app-based modes of transport would also be created.

The yet-to-be-named free mobile application will also have a special feature for scanning of QR codes of private cab drivers to verify their details.

Assam Police sources told The Assam Tribune that the application is being developed by the same team of experts, who had successfully done it for Delhi Police.

Assam has registered 12,750 cases of crime against women in the year 2017-18. This includes 1,751 cases of alleged rape, and murder, and 10,460 dowry crimes.

�At the moment, the developers are working on the language aspect. The application will be available in Assamese language as well to make it user friendly and also encourage more and more women to opt for it,� sources said, adding that the user would need to register in the app after downloading it from the Google Playstore to fetch the OPT which the user needs to enter to complete the application configuration.

�As soon as an alarm is raised, the information will be transmitted to the police control room and subsequently, to the nearest patrol party or the police station to respond. We are sure the new app will improve the response time of the law enforcers and help in preventing crimes against women to a great extent,� sources said.

�As far as the use of QR codes is concerned, we will have to first ensure that all the private cabs, autorickshaws have QR codes. That will be done in a phased manner,� sources pointed out.

�We are hoping to launch the mobile app within two to three months. Further, it would be continuously updated depending on the response from the users. We are trying to keep it simple for the users,� sources said.
