CRPF on Thursday launched a WhatsApp-based helpline that will provide medicines and other essential items to the needy in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. The assistance has been launched under the umbrella of its Kashmir-based ‘Madadgaar’ helpline that operates with the primary number of 14411 and Twitter handle @CRPFmadadgaar.

The force on Thursday issued a message on its social media platforms publicising the new WhatsApp number- 7082814411. It said the helpline can be specifically used by Kashmiri people living in the Jammu-Kashmir Union Territory and also by those living in the northern part of the country, that is the area of responsibility of its J&K zone. The helpline will provide a one stop solution to our extended family, CRPF’s J-K zone chief commander Zulfiquar Hasan said in a message.
