Posted on

Keeping with the tradition, local police in Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh, have started a campaign called “TI Mera Bhai Hai” to combat the online harassment complaints they've received.

Under this campaign, girls from the town have been encouraged to take pictures with their thana in-charge (TI) to use as their display pictures on Whatsapp along with the status "TI mera bhai hai" (The TI is my brother) to avoid being harrassed.
