As many people complain of delayed FIRs in theft and snatching cases, Ludhiana Commissioner of Police Rakesh Agrawal has taken an initiative and ordered immediate registration of FIRs in such cases.

The top cop had told all police station heads to implement the order seriously and start registering FIRs.

“Is your vehicle stolen in Ludhiana and FIR not registered? The Ludhiana Commissionarate Police has started a scheme of hassle-free registration of FIRs. Residents can send their complaints through email to cp.ldh.police@punjab.gov.in and their FIRs will be registered automatically without asking any question or even verifying facts before hand. The copy of the FIR would be made available to them via email/WhatsApp within 24 hours,” said Agrawal.

The scheme will be useful in registering FIRs in cases of theft at house, burglary, snatching and vehicle thefts. Complainants have to mention their name, father’s/husband’s name, address, email address mobile number, place of occurrence, date and time of occurrence, suspect details and incident details in their applications.

The CP felt that the initiative would reduce grievances of the public who sometimes have to run from pillar to post to get their FIRs registered in such matters.

However, in matrimonial disputes and fraud cases, FIRs will be registered only after preliminary inquiry to ascertain facts, as per the current practice.

Complainants in theft cases have to face hassles in getting the FIR registered. If the police station does not register an FIR, the complainant has to approach higher police officials. Now, to do away with the practice, the CP wants to get the registration of the FIR in such cases within 24 hours of receiving the complaint online.
