An instant flash of dialling ‘100’ to avail the help of the police helped a Class X girl to come out of her ‘confinement’ at home, and take the ongoing Board Examinations on May 3. The incident came to light at Moogireddigaripalle village of Ramapuram mandal, 20 km from Rayachoti.

According to sources, the girl’s father, who is reportedly not in favour of his daughter continuing her education, took objection to her taking the examination. When the girl was getting ready to leave for the examination centre at the Ramapuram mandal headquarters on Tuesday, he had forcibly confined her to a room. With only a short span of time left for the examination to commence, the girl sought police help by calling helpline number 100.

Within a few minutes, Superintendent of Police S. Harshavardhan Raju directed the area police at the Ramapuram station to reach out to the girl and render necessary assistance. A special team rushed to the village and escorted her to the examination hall.

Sub-inspector U.Y. Jayaramulu told The Hindu that the girl did a commendable job. “After the examination, the girl and her parents were brought to the police station and counselled. Till the completion of all her exams, our team will be escorting her to the examination centre,” he said.
