While Mumbai Police’s Twitter handle is quite popular among Netizens for its witty tweets and creative memes, seems like the Assam police department has also taken some inspiration. The official Twitter account of the department @assam_police tweeted an informative picture on stalking.
“Understand the difference between a Compliment and Harassment. Unwanted Attention is Stalking,” read the tweet. It did not take long for people to notice this new activity on the official account and many including actor Kajol complimented the move.

Retweeting the post, Kajol wrote, “Compliment by respecting, not by stalking.” There were many responses to the original tweet, with many also asking the department to share the same in the local language. Here are some of the reactions the tweet garnered:

Love n respect for the initiative but it would do more good if one can put the same in local languages and english in public hoardings on the roads and villages. Donot think even a small amount of goons use or can use twitter..
