It’s common now to give online or offline reviews about the service we receive, but a recent review about a police station caught the eyes of netizens and is going viral now.
A man – named Logeshwaran S – posted a review on the Google map about Thirumullaivoyal T10 Police Station in Chennai, in which he detailed the experience of his ‘stay’ in the police station. Composed like a typical hotel/resort review, the writer of the post, who claims to be a ‘local guide’, said that he was arrested around midnight for riding a two-wheeler without proper documents.
His review went about; “The station is clean and is located on the main road. Staff members are very kind, and I did not face any harassment from them.”
He further added that he was released without demanding any bribe and concluded stating ” A must-visit place in your life” along with 4-star rating.
The image went viral in social media and prompted others to go on google media and rate police station; within 24 hours, there were plenty of reviews about the station.
Ok. I understand that #ratings and reviews are a great thing for restaurants, places of interest, experiences.
But @Google , posting reviews about a police station jail lockup is taking the idea of reviews a bit too far!
What do you all think?
