“Handcuffs issue need to be resolved immediately.
“Officer in charge please make it criminal friendly.”
Another Twitter user proclaimed that Indian police stations should from here on out request criminals to rate them after their release.
A similar incident occurred in 2019 when reviews for a Chennai’s Thirumullaivoyal T10 Police Station became a viral sensation.
Logeshwaran S first posted a review of the police station stating:
“The station is clean and is located on the main road. Staff members are very kind and I did not face any harassment from them.”
He gave 4-stars and added: “A must-visit visit place in your life.”
Post his review going viral, several others kept on adding their reviews.
Another reviewer wrote:
“Amazing place. Upcoming and very popular. Only locals know how good this place is. Must visit when visiting Thirumullaivoyal.”
“Easy and hassle-free check-in. Zero upfront payment and good hospitality by the staff, no mosquitoes and open 24×7.”
It is yet unclear whether these people have actually been arrested at the prisons reviewed or not.
