Daijiworld Media Network- Mangaluru (VP)

Bengaluru, Feb 20: Radio City, India's leading radio network, has collaborated with the Bangalore City Police to launch a captivating crime series titled "HUSHAAR BENGALURU." The series, which premiered on Republic Day, January 26th, aims to expose the typical crimes in Bengaluru, providing a revealing look at the city's crime scene.

In 2023, Bengaluru saw a concerning increase of nearly 23.9% in crimes against women, totalling 3,260 cases compared to the preceding year. Crimes under the Indian Penal Code against women, such as kidnapping, abduction, human trafficking, rape, and assault, have increased, making them urgent issues. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), Bengaluru ranks third among 19 metropolitan cities for crimes against women in 2022, following only Delhi and Mumbai. This collaboration demonstrates Radio City's dedication to raising community awareness and tackling critical issues through strong narratives.

"HUSHAAR BENGALURU" offers access to the most fascinating and thrilling cases from the Bengaluru police files, which are professionally hosted by the renowned celebrity Sheetal Shetty. Navigating Bengaluru's bustling streets, the series serves as a cautionary tale of the city's hidden stories, combining actual footage, valuable interviews, and in-depth investigations. Sheetal Shetty, a renowned television anchor and actress, helps to the series based on her experience as a news anchor on TV9 and their contributions to films such as "Ulidavaru Kandante," "Kendasampige," and "96." Her directing credits include "Window Seat," which is currently streaming on ZEE5.

Ashit Kukian, CEO of Radio City, stated, "HUSHAAR BENGALURU is more than just a radio series; it is a platform designed to raise awareness and spark conversations about the various types of crimes that affect the city. With India's total crime rate of 445.9 incidents per 100,000 people this year, addressing theft, robbery, and assault is significant. Radio City hopes that this series will encourage citizens to be alert and proactive in ensuring their own and their communities' safety.

Sheetal Shetty, a well-known celebrity, commented on the initiative, saying, "Hosting the impactful 'HUSHAAR BENGALURU' crime series, which sheds light on the city's crime scene, is truly fulfilling. It's an incredible effort that addresses critical issues while encouraging a shared commitment to creating a safe and united society. Radio City's initiative resonates across the airwaves, inspiring us all to actively contribute to a brighter and safer future for all."

Commissioner of police B Dayananda added, "The show's insightful pictures of the city's crime scene is noteworthy." It brings together citizens and law enforcement, demonstrating a shared responsibility for peace and security. I'm glad 'HUSHAAR BENGALURU' serves as both an informative crime series and a unifying force. "The show is a positive step towards a united front against crime."

This ground-breaking collaboration not only sheds light on Bengaluru's crime scene, but it also ensures engaging interactions that are perfectly suited to the tech-savvy and socially conscious Millennial and Gen Z demographics. Tune in to Radio City every Friday at 8 pm for these gripping episodes.
