However, not paying heed to her protests, her aunt fixed the marriage last year in July – which is when Nandini had to take some drastic action. “Two years ago, I had come across a child line number at school. The day before the wedding, I called up the Collector’s office – the PA answered and I explained my situation. That night, they came to my house and rescued me,” she recalled. Nandini’s family members were arrested initially and then released, and efforts are on to establish a working relationship with them now.
