Bengaluru: Apparently the Bengaluru police have taken to WhatsApp, a mobile messaging app for promoting community awareness in the city.

Inner WatsappJ.P. Nagar residents were put on high alert after the jurisdictional police sent out alerts using the instant messenger, warning them not to fall for a fraudulent salesperson.

According to the J.P. Nagar station inspector S.K. Mahajan, a group of three to four persons may visit houses posing as representatives of a water company offering to change taps and bulbs. “They are robbers and mug residents at gunpoint. Please alert your contacts as you may save a life. Make sure the door is locked all times, use door chain always,” says the message.

The message was circulated widely in the area, said the residents.

“WhatsApp has become a convenient way to alert people. As prevention is better than crime, through the WhatsApp service, we are keeping our area safe,” Mr. Mahajan added
