Dhanalakshmi (Advocate)     09 February 2014


If anybody lodged complaint of cognizable offence. Police has power to give CSR without FIR. My question is whether the accused or counsel of accused is entitled to read that complaint given before sub-inspector.  I would like to know why accused were not allowed to see complaint copy? why they were not provided with copy of complaint if enquiry is conducted based on CSR? If RTI permits accused to get copy of complaint lodged against him why police refusing to allow them to read complaint lodged against him in police station?

thefts are congizable offences and Supreme Court has asserted repeatedly that FIR must be filed for such complaints. The reason the police do not do so for theft of mobile phones or laptops is to avoid paperwork and accountability over the case.
