Sudha Police Station Gayi Thi

Sudha, a woman facing domestic violence, approaches a police station for help. Her experience there leaves her wondering whether the police can be of any help in such situations. She meets Anita, an activist, who familiarises her with the basic procedures and police personnel involved in registering cognisable and non-cognisable complaints. In the process, Sudha begins to appreciate the possibilities and limitations of police intervention.
