Time and time again, the Mumbai Police has made use of various memes and other video-based public service announcements to raise awareness of various things. On Monday, it asked people to contact the police by dialing the helpline number and tweeted: “If you encounter life emergencies, don’t ‘interezaar’, but #Dial100”. To this, a Twitter user jokingly reported to them that he was trapped in space, and authorities quickly joined in the fun and responded with an equally hilarious post.
In the tweet, the user named @BMSKhan shared a photo of a person dressed as an astronaut standing on the moon. Our blue planet is also visible in the background. “I got stuck here,” he wrote in the caption.

Within hours, the Mumbai Police responded to the post, jokingly saying it was not under their jurisdiction, but they were happy that the person trusted them “to the moon and back”. “This one is really out of our jurisdiction. But we’re glad you trust us to the moon and back :),” the tweet read.
This one is really not under our jurisdiction.
But we’re glad you entrust us to the moon and back. 🙂 https://t.co/MLfDlpbCd8
