However, not everyone guessed it right, few took a different thought process to guess the answer.

Citizens also appreciated Pune Police's creativity to keep the public engaged and informed.

In the month of April, to ingrain the habit of wearing masks, practice social distancing and sanitising hands frequently, Pune Police used a picture of Bollywood Actor, Amir Khan from the film Ghajini.  

In the film Ghanjini, Amir Khan suffers from short-time memory loss and he tattoos important dates and events on his body to remember them. Using the same idea, Pune Police, designed the picture in such a way, that now Ghajini was wearing a blue mask along with a tattoo on his torso, which read, "Forget everything but don't forget to wear a mask."

 

 

Even on Internation Day Against Drug Abuse, Pune Police managed to share a creative GIF, which raised awareness against Drug Abuse.
