Virk said: "Unlike other safety apps, one doesn't need to press any emergency button to send an SMS. At the time of need, your smartphone will send out an SOS to the police, ambulance and family."

Many victims of road accidents die because they don't get timely medical attention, he added.

Jindal took the opportunity to share the speciality of the app with the people present at the launch ceremony.
