Highlighting the perils of social media, CO Ravikant Gonda emphasized the importance of being vigilant while using online platforms. He warned students about the rising trend of fake IDs on social media and how they are often used to target girls and women. “Do not make friends through social media, and if you receive calls from unknown numbers, do not share OTPs or any personal information,” he advised, stressing that banks and other institutions do not ask for personal details over the phone.

The police officer also addressed the importance of safety on the roads, urging students to ensure their parents wear helmets while riding.

The session was interactive, with students asking numerous questions, which were answered comprehensively by the police officers present. The initiative by Amar Ujala Foundation was lauded for its efforts in educating the youth on crucial aspects of safety and responsibility in today’s digital and fast-paced world.
