A person has to tag so many handles. And pray dt one of them would respond.
Also, please take note of why Helpline numbers were not responding.
Tigmanshu tweeted once again informing his followers that his niece was safe. "Thank you all for responding I am really great full no help line numbers worked but eventually like in india Jugaad kiya and cops came she is safe now thanks again guys," the actor wrote.
He also praised the police official and the departments to respond quickly and also slammed the Railways for having helpline numbers which didn’t work.
"I want to thank the police and the concerned department for responding quickly but I would still say that the helpline numbers were of no use thank you all for the support from the bottom of my heart," Tigmanshu Dhulia wrote.
