A helpline for people who need psychological assistance with violent tendencies was announced at Jantar Mantar here on Saturday by the Art of Living Foundation, an official said.

“People with violent tendencies can call up the helpline [011-3072222] for counselling,” said foundation director Gautam Vig.

“This is not an emergency helpline. Its intention is to reduce stress at a spiritual level so that we can clean society affected with alcoholism and stress.”

The helpline was launched following the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman on December 16. She died in a Singapore hospital on December 29.
