"Help In Emergency is an application developed to help citizens in emergency, especially the women during night," Crime Branch sub-inspector T R Bhatt said.
Developed by Yash Rajpurohit, a cybercrime consultant with the Detection of Crime Branch (DCB), the application is supported by Android 2.0.
"Citizens can fill in details in the specified format on app. The details reach the recipient whose help has been sought within seconds on pressing a button," said Rajpurohit, a 23-year-old engineering graduate from Rajasthan.
Once the app is downloaded, an icon shows up on the phone's home-screen.
"This was developed after the gang-rape in New Delhi where no one came to the help of the 23-year-old girl and her male friend," said Rajpurohit.
