So, we asked her to file a complaint in Kaggalipura police station, the inspector took over the complaint. our org team personally looked into the case and called her in-laws and husband to the station including two more people who were threatening her for life. Inspector counseled them for more than 2 hours but Yet Prema G was not satisfied.
She approached us again telling us, 'I didn't like the attitude of the police, can you accompany me to the police station'
We along with our team and Prema G went to the Kaggalipura police station.
Prema G had 3 demand -
1) Return 1lakh rupees to her mother which her husband has taken
2) To give back her pledged gold(her wedding jewelry which she got as a gift from her parents)
3) To keep her and their kids in a separate house and look them well
"Rise up for Rights" satisfied her with fulfilling all her demands.

To add on... The policemen in the station ignored us and made us wait for long hours. So, we went to higher authorities and filed a complaint against them. We received an apology from the police station and also we got a quick and positive response from the police.
