Karnataka high court recently fined cops for 'moral policing' a 22-year-old woman who is a survivor of domestic violence by forcefully confining her. Police Inspector Sunil Balasaheb Patil summoned the woman and tried to mediate and resolve matters after her husband filed a missing persons' complaint. Cops confined the woman and her 3-year-old daughter in a rehabilitation facility for trafficking victims in Belagavi for almost five months. They did it because she wanted to leave husband and be with someone else.
