Twenty-four hours before the upcoming cyclone, mass evacuation was carried out and around 1.3 million people were evacuated to certain multi-purpose shelters. Police have also played a key role in managing law and order, removing roads, distributing aid, restoration works, etc.
The police also provided drinking water, first aid and medical services to affected people in a war situation during this crisis.
