To put a check on women being harassed on over the phone or messages or WhatsApp, Hoshangabad police has come up with a unique idea.

The police have started a campaign called 'Selfie with TI' and 'TI Mere Bhai', under which college girls were invited to take a selfie with the thana in-charge and put it up as their display picture on WhatsApp.

This campaign is the brainchild of SP AP Singh. When it was explained at colleges, students welcomed the idea with enthusiasm.

So far, about 500 girls have taken selfies with TI MS Chauhan and used it as their display picture.

The girls were also urged to write 'TI Mere Bhai' as their status, in order to give out a clear message to the harassers.

The police expects this initiative will discourage anyone from harassing a woman, however if someone is caught doing so, old and faithful police methods will be used to shut them down.
