How to File an Online FIR or Complaint to Assam Police?

  • FIR (First Information Report): This is a formal report submitted to the police containing initial information about cognizable or non-cognizable offences, whether criminal or civil. To lodge an FIR, a person must approach the designated officer at the local police station.
