Vikarabad: School dropout dials 100, asks cops for beer; booked

Vikarabad police station was in for a rude shock when they received a call on Dial 100 asking cops to arrange two bottles of beer for him. Janigala Madhu, 22, a school dropout, argued that the police are addressing people's needs and arranging for him alcohol will be one such deed.

SI Vikarabad police station V Ramesh Kumar said a case was registered against him and he was counseled not to indulge in such acts. "Dial 100 is an emergency helpline. We request people to not misuse it and call for genuine needs," he added.

Earlier in May, a tipsy man was arrested for pestering police after his wife refused to cook mutton for him on Holi.

The bizarre incident took place in the Nalgonda district. Naveen of Cherla Gowraram village in Kanagal Mandal dialed 100 not once but six times to complain about his wife.

Naveen was in an inebriated condition when he picked up the phone and dialed 100. He was angry that his wife refused to cook mutton. Police initially dismissed it as a prank call, but when Naveen continued making the calls, the officer in charge informed his superiors, who decided to take action against him.

Police traced the caller and the next morning he was taken into custody. A police officer said the man has been booked under section 290 (public nuisance) and 510 (misconduct in public by a drunken person) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
