Time and again, the Mumbai Police has made use of several memes and other video-based public service announcements to make people aware of various things. On Monday, it asked people to reach out to law enforcement by calling on the helpline number and tweeted, "If you encounter any emergencies in life, don't 'intezaar', just #Dial100". To this, a Twitter user jokingly reported to them that he was stuck in space, and authorities quickly joined-in on the fun and responded with an equally hilarious post.
In the tweet, the user by the name @BMSKhan shared a picture wherein a person dressed as an astronaut is seen standing on the moon. In the background, our blue planet is also visible. "I got stuck here," he wrote in the caption.

Within hours, the Mumbai police responded to the post and jokingly said that it was not under their jurisdiction but they were glad that the person trusted them "to the moon and back". "This one is really not under out jurisdiction. But we are glad that you trust us to the moon and back :)," the tweet read.
