The situation depends upon the type of threat. In my view, the immediate help available was the higher authority and not police. However, if the act was violent, final report to police is discretionary matter of the person on duty. If his problem is solved by approaching the higher authority, then it might be an option to to not to call the poclie.






now th eperson called police and he is facing show cause notice.

what are defenses availalble to him, as he called police w/o informing senior authority.

now what should he do to avoid any negative action towards him.

pls guide , if any case law or something helpful then it is of grt help.
