Call 100 or 1091(emergency helpline number for women) and report it to the concerned authority.
Write down the police report or incident number and keep it with your records.
One can seek medical attention if required.
Victims can move to domestic violence shelter as stated under section 6 of protection of women from Domestic Violence act, 2005.
Seek the support of people on whom you have trust or who would keep your privacy. They could be your friend, a family member, a neighbour etc.
File for protection order immediately, so that the abuser can stay away from you.
