  1. Carry any proof of evidence that will make your case a strong one.  
  2. Take a trusted person along with you  
  3. When you approach a policeman with your problem, he is legally obliged to report it in a document called First Information Report (FIR).  
  4. The police can investigate it and even arrest the abuser if the offense is classified as cognizable.
