Last year around March, the UP Police had launched a special helpline number for victims of domestic abuse. In a front-page advertisement in a newspaper, UP Police had announced, “Suppress corona, not your voice”. The advertisement included the sketch of a woman’s face wearing a face mask. The move is meant to provide an “enhanced response” to cases of violence against women.
