Filing an FIR (First Information Report)
All refugees whose houses or other properties have been burned or vandalized, all pastors whose churches have been burned, all people who have been hurt, or attacked, or if your loved ones have been killed, please go to the nearest police station and file an FIR, a “First Information Report”
I am not at my home city, I am in Delhi, Shillong, Lamka, another town. Can I file?
Yes, you can file a “Zero FIR” wherever you are located.
Why is an FIR necessary?
It is vital that all atrocities and losses incurred are documented and on record. This will serve as official record of what happened and will likely be a requirement for any relief or rehabilitation efforts from official sources.
