1090 is not terror helpline

There is a hoax mail spinning around the web and it says

"Dear all, In case you come across any suspicious activity, any suspicious movement or have any information to tell to the Anti-Terror Squad, please take a note of the new all India toll-free terror helpline 1090. Your city’s police or Anti-Terror Squad will take action as quickly as possible."

1090 is NOT a terror help line number in India. 1090 is the helpline for senior citizens, run by the city police and Nightingales Medical Trust (still I called 1090 to confirm it from airtel and unfortunately airtel says its not a valid number !!!)

So in case you get a mail like this and what you can do is immediately 'replay to all' and inform that 1090 is NOT a terror helpline.

Any body knows which is the common toll free terror help line in India and can call free from any telephone service providers ?
