Course Brief

An FIR is a very important document as it sets the process of criminal justice in motion. It is only after the FIR is registered in the police station that the police takes up investigation of the case.

The First Information Report is the initial step in a criminal case recorded by the police which contains the basic knowledge of the crime committed, place of commission, who was the victim etc. The definition of the First Information Report has been provided in the code of the Criminal Procedure of 1973

Registering of F.I.R. includes only the process of entering the substance of the information relating to the commission of the cognizable offense in a book kept by the officer in charge of the police station, it need not be an encyclopaedia containing every minute detail of the offense.
