How to file an FIR?

FIR stands for "First Information Report" and is the initial step in a criminal case recorded by the police.

FIRs can only be registered for cognizable offences, which are crimes where the police can arrest without a warrant.

It is important to register an FIR as soon as possible after a crime takes place to avoid suspicion and provide a viable explanation for any delay.

The following individuals can file an FIR: the victim of the crime, a friend or relative of the victim, or anyone with knowledge of a crime that has occurred or is about to occur.

Ideally, the FIR should be registered at the police station within whose jurisdiction the crime took place, but in emergencies, any police station can register the FIR and transfer the case to the appropriate station.

FIRs can be registered in person at the police station, through the "Indian Police at your call" phone application, via phone call, or through email.

When registering an FIR, provide information about the alleged offence either verbally or in writing. The police officer will make an entry in the Daily Diary/General Diary and provide you with a stamped copy as proof of receipt.

 Carefully review the details of the FIR before signing it, ensuring that the date, time, and identity of the accused (if known) are accurately mentioned.

Once the FIR is registered, the police will investigate the case, record witness statements, and proceed with further legal action based on the evidence gathered. Additional information related to the case can be provided to the police at any point.
