New Delhi:  India has issued an advisory to citizens traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to be alert and monitor local media in the wake of a strike by police there which has led to limited police presence in some areas.

The advisory has also asked Indians visiting Rio de Janeiro to follow the guidance of local authorities. 

"In case they need consular assistance, they are requested to contact the Embassy of India in Brasilia at +55-61-32484006 (email:attcons.brasilia@mea.gov.in and hoc.brasilia@mea.gov.in ) or the Consulate General of India in Sao Paulo at +55-11-32793780 (email:visa@cgisaopaulo.in)," the advisory said.

The advisory is only for Rio de Janeiro. Last month, the Brazilian government decided to send 9,000 troops from the armed forces to reinforce security in Rio de Janeiro following the police strike over poor pay.
