Time limit to report a crime of 4yrs old and continuting

Is there a statue of limitations (time limitation) in filling a criminal complaint?
I have an tresspassing incident happend to my old parents 4 yrs ago, we filled a complaint immediately
but told the police to drop the action as of now because it was done by a distant relative.
But now we were threatened by them so we took all the issue to the police but they are not
even investigating. Could you help?

Dear querist,

 

In case crime is continuing in nature then it can be done now.

You can file FIR mentioning current happenings and citing the previous FIR number.
