In what may soon be a relief to the schools girls, housewives and working women, facing obscene text messages and lewd phone call menace, Noida Police are setting up an anti-obscene call cell from this month on the lines of Delhi.

Those being harassed will not have to go to the police station or change their numbers. They will get instant relief, sitting at home, claim police officials. The cell will take complaints both from urban and rural areas of the district.

"We hope to start the service by this month-end. Any woman will be able to inform the cell about the calls, messages and caller's number at Surajpur police headquarters," a senior police officer said.

The 24-hour helpline will also act on complaints on objectionable MMSes. The numbers are: 01202525100 and 8800199956.
