“Bharosa has become an integral need for Hyderabad and the close to 10,000 victims who rendered support in the past five years is a testimony to this,” Mr. Kumar said.

Ms. Goel said that the centre had taken several business continuity measures during the pandemic and it was not closed even for a day. “The measures included the launching of cloud telephony based virtual number, tele-counselling and infrastructure upgrades to help insulate staff from the pandemic to the extent possible,” she said. Ms. Lakra said that the best practices from the centre were being replicated across other districts and the government had approved to set up Bharosa centres in all major police districts in the State and many were already operational.

The event concluded with the screening of a short movie and testimonies from victims as well as long-standing employees.
