Can police them self dismiss the fir filed by them?

If Police file FIR with IPC420 and after filing ,  with some Medical Examinations  they found that it is a false complaint.


Now can the Police dismiss the case saying a false complaint or it has to be submitted in court?

if the FIR is filed then Court has the power to dismiss the case based on the inquiry report produced in court by Police.
