In legal terms, the police is to register the FIR in case of any cognizable offence within their territorial jurisdiction. 

If all your actions go in vain and the authority illegally refuses to lodge your FIR, you could file a complaint before Judical Magistrate/ Metropolitan Magsitrate under sec 156(3) CrPC directing the police to register the FIR.

if police refuse to register your complaint, then you should go to the local court having jurisdiction, and file the complaint case u/s 156(3) of Cr P C the Hon.magistrate can direct the police to register the FIR & investigate the matter.
