This is a wonderful development:

A newly-formed helpline called Love Commandos is taking calls from distraught couples. The Love Commandos include lawyers and social activists, and claims to have attracted 140,000 volunteers across India. They have helped rescue many couples from death by forcing police to intervene. Those in danger can now get instant help by simply dialing a number and telling their life is threatened or a girlfriend has been held captive.

The founder of Love Commandos, Harsh Malhotra, shares that “Whenever we get a call that a couple is being threatened, we contact our commandos and tell them to go there immediately to help them. If they face any problem, we inform the police. Our team of lawyers also reach there so that the couple is not attacked, threatened or mistreated.”
