When sub-inspector Shapla picked up the hotline, she heard a woman screaming for help on the other end.
“Please help me. My husband is beating me. I’m dying,” said the woman in a desperate voice.
The distress call on August 21 this year came from Dhalpur community centre in the capital city.
SI Shapla (who gave only one name), then in charge of Quick Response Team (QRT) of police, gathered her team and rushed to the scene where she found a 22-year-old woman being battered by her husband.
