State Law Minister P.C. Sharma said "The government is serious about developing an app on the lines of America's AMBER Alert. We will hold talks with Google. Through this app, information about crimes and sketches of accused will reach the common man. It will help to arrest them in lesser time."
The AMBER (America's Missing Broadcast Emergency Response) Alert app was implemented in America after the abduction and killing of a nine-year-old girl in 1996.
