How to File a FIR

Police must write down details of cognizable crimes if they are given orally.

You have the right to request that details recorded by the cop be read to you as a person who has given information or made a complaint.

The person who provided the data must sign the police report when it is recorded.

After you verify that the information in the police report is correct, you should sign it.

For people who cannot read or write, they must place their left thumb impression onto the paper until it becomes a valid record.

Always demand a copy of the FIR if the police refuse to give it. You have the right to request it without cost.
