she may file complaint directly to the police station concerned. if police does nt record f.i.r. n register a case, she may file an application under section 156(3) Cr.P.C in the court of magistrate concerned taking help of an advocate.


Que. 1. How did she receive such threat - by email / by verbal / by letter / by phone / by sms ?

1 a: After submitting such life and limb threat a request to lodge FIR in jurisdiction PS the police is duty bound to act within 48 Hrs.

1b.: If not then she can directly file a Complaint before ACMM Court  U/s 156 (3) CrPC. Now here the ans. to above que. comes handy that is why I asked it because the procedure before ACMM will be 90% direct for  call for police action taken report (which as per SC Law is not required but ACMM normally do that) or 10% times Application of Mind by Hon'ble Judge (if Basu Judgment is handy it could be plead) .

1c: Now if police report says nothing cognisiable found then it will be converted into S. 200 CrPC if your friends side can remove bar of S. 195 and then it will go into complainant staement recording followed by witness statements needs to be recorded as per witness list provided by her under such section and based on her Statement and value of witness statements cognizance may be taken which all depends on abv. que. 1 answer.

Ld. members may correct me to above procedure as per title subject.

Mr. Karan,

Ad Ankush and Mr. Arun both have answered correctly.  Further there must be sufficient proof for receiving threat. If it is email, letter, cell phone conversation or by sms, the matter will have documentary evidence. For verbal threat sufficient witness shall be there orelse, it is not easy to prove

.Please do not erase the email in the computer and cell phone conversation and sms in the cellphone. Take the print out of the email and sms and transfer the conversation of cell phone on to the CD and prepare the conversation write up as in the conversation and submit them with a complaint to the Police to lodge complaint.  If police do not file FIR then proceed through court under the guidance of an Advocate.

If ur friend do not have sufficient witnesses, who will come to the court , it is better not to proceed with the case either with the police or through court.
