Mobile app to track missing gadgets, bikes

Bhubaneswar: The Cuttack-Bhubaneswar Commissionerate Police is developing a new mobile application that will enable individuals to track their missing gadgets and bikes.

TheCommissionerate Police took the decision to introduce such an application as a large stock of recovered electronic gadgets are lying in the police store rooms (malkhanas), which has turned out to be a tiresome job for the cops to return them to their owners.

Commissioner of police Yogesh Bahadur Khuraniathe new app called ‘Lost and Found’ will be compatible with smartphones and help people to trace their lost mobile phones and motorcycles just by registering a complaint.

“Whenever a person loses his mobile phone or it is stolen, he will simply need to upload the IMEI number along with the cell phone brand name in the complaint box of the app and it will match the gadget with the list of the recovered mobile phones by the police,” said Khurania.

In case of stolen motorcycles, one will have to provide the engine number and the registration number to track the missing bike, he added.

He said that the list of seized mobile phones and motorcycles will be uploaded to the application interface, which will be very techno-friendly and easy to search missing items and retrieve them conveniently.
