Harassed by traffic personnel in Delhi? Send a complaint directly to the top traffic police officer on his personal mobile phone through an SMS.

Joint commissioner of police (traffic) Satyendra Garg made his mobile number public on Friday and asked people to send complaints of any wrongdoing by traffic police, specially related to corruption, with some "evidence".

He revealed his number, 9818708053, and urged people to send him complaints on text messages.

"Complaints should not be general but with some evidence. At a time I will be able to handle some complaints only… I want to assure that appropriate action will be taken against the wrongdoers," he said.

Two days ago, two traffic policemen were suspended for illegally stopping commercial vehicles with "ulterior motives" near India Gate.

Earlier in a post on Delhi Police's Facebook account, Garg said he read several comments about corruption in traffic police. "Let me freely admit I am fully aware of corruption and have been taking action wherever evidence comes,” he said.
