In April, 51 new ‘Pink Hoysala’ patrolling vehicles were launched in the city by the Chief Minister of Karnataka. These vehicles were added to the previous 221 hi-tech Ertiga taking the total number to 272. The vehicles pack in tablets that can be accessed through internet or GPS and there is at least one female officer in each vehicle. One must note that these vehicles get in-built GPRS and internet facility with Google maps. Since these vehicles are for the safety of women and children, patrolled by female officers, they come with a bright pink coloured bumper in front and rear. Other bits like the large ‘Police’ lettering along with the emblem on bonnet and either side of the car signify its purpose. Up front, the splash of pink around the bumper goes well with the all black finish around the grille, air-intakes and fog lamp housings. While it misses out on the chrome work, the alloy wheels are also missing around the tyres. Atop is the police beacon and it gets all black wing mirrors on the side. Besides, other important information like mobile number etc are also mentioned on the vehicle. Read More – Indian Couple Covers 19 Countries In 72 Days
