Hello Shivali Nanda,
Welcome to RTI India. Regarding your query on FIR, the Police can refuse to register the FIR only in non-cognizable offences. In all cognizable offences it is mandatory on the part of the police station to register the FIR. However, if the Police Station refuses to register the FIR, a complaint shall be made to the senior police officer. The complaint can be made to the Concerned Circle Officer, Addl. SP or the Superintendent of Police of the concerned District. These officers will get the FIR registered and investigated. In case you are hailing from a big city like Mumbai, the police department web site may have a provision of lodging a complaint through internet. If such a facility is available in your place, you can make use of the same to report the case of stolen vehicle.
Welcome to RTI India Shivali,
First i would like to congratulate for taking up a noble cause for helping a man in need. i am just jotting down some points which came to my mind. Ganpat has given a good start about how to go about lodging a FIR. You can send a copy of FIR by registered post with a copy to superintendent of police. Keep the slip as proof of having send the FIR.
Apart from that just think aboutt following
1. Was his tempo was taken on loan?
2. Was the loan came with a insurance clause?
3. If not has he himself taken a auto insurance loan?
Thankyou Mr.Ganpat and Mr. Maneesh. I have already asked him to give me the details. I'll shortly talk to senior police officers. And Maneesh you js said that i should send a copy of F.I.R to Supritendent Of Police...Coud you pls tell me wat help wd that do once F.I.R is already lodged? and i'll surely enquire abt his insurance or loans clauses...Thanks for you help...
