  5. Hi Jesudas,

    Please contact on the numbers mentioned at the bottom of this Article and make a complaint.

  6. What if i complained. Would I be asked to visit police station. Would I be in some sort of trouble? Can they themselves take the action if i provide them details? I dont want to be dragged into the issue and waste my time as the system is so pathetic that no one wants to be the whistle blower and get dragged into unnecessary things. What if I just complain anonymously and rest is taken care? Is that possible?

  7. Hi Jatin,

    You can make a call at the numbers mentioned and tell them that you want to do a complaint anonymously.
