I called up police helpline number 100, but no one picked up. I had an idea that he was planning to get me beaten up. Around 20-30 men came and they started to hit me. Even I hit them back but obviously, they were huge in number."

Even they filed a case against me for hitting them and hence along with them even I was jailed. I have no complaints with the police.

If the police are not there to help, where do people like me find help?"
