After the brutal gang rape of a young woman in Delhi sparked protests demanding greater security for women, authorities have set up a helpline exclusively for women.

Staff deal with up to 3,000 calls a day about sexual harassment, stalking and attacks.

A senior consultant at the help line, Khadeeja, explains to the BBC how it works.
