The procedure for filing an FIR is mentioned under Section 154 of the Criminal Procedure Code, 1973. You can file the FIR at any police station. You do not necessarily have to be in that area particular area where the crime has been committed. But, try to visit a nearest police station as the FIR has to be filled immediately without any delay. Delay in registration may cause a suspicion as to whether it was an afterthought or a concocted version. Anyone, a victim of a crime, a person who has witnessed a crime or who has information about the crime can file an FIR. Ideally, the FIR should be registered in the police station within whose geographical limits the crime took place. But in case of an emergency, there is no bar on any other police station registering the FIR and then transferring the investigation to the correct station. Also, it is not always necessary to go in person to register the FIR. In an emergency, the police can register an FIR based on a phone call or e-mail. 1 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to add an answer.
