Since Section 332 & 353 relate to valuntarily Causing hurt and Assault or criminal force on the Public Servent, you have to prove about your victimisation and file a counter FIR if you have been hurt or assaulted.riven

No a police officer can not lodge FIR against an accused, regarding a matter in which he himself is a victim but he may be a complainant of the case, but either registering the FIR or investigation shall be conducted by another police officer. The law clearly says, the affeced person cannot be a investigation officer for his own case. if in your case, the victim police officer is the investigating the case or register the case, you can file quash petition before the Hon'ble Highcourtriven
