Bhubaneswar, Feb 5 (PTI) The Puri Police has relaunched its tourist helpline number 63709 67100 to ensure the safety of the visitors to the holy coastal town, a statement issued on Friday said.

The relaunch comes after the harassment of a tourist couple in a private bus, it said.

'Tourists can call this number 24x7 for any grievance or complaint,' the police statement said.

The Puri SP on Thursday chaired a meeting with office-bearers of all the private tourist bus associations, who assured support to the law enforcers to ensure the safety of the visitors.

It was decided that sensitisation and behavioural change sessions will be repeatedly conducted for bus drivers and their helpers and the tourist helpline number will be displayed prominently inside all tourist buses, an official said.

The number was earlier discontinued due to lack of use, sources said. PTI AAM ACD PTI PTI
