How to File a Police Complaint in Bangalore

Name should not be empty

A police complaint is filed when a police official has harassed you or violated your rights. Any individual can file a police complaint but this needs to be done responsibly and for legitimate reasons as the consequences are usually taken seriously.

Pre-process requirements:

If you have a complaint to file in any police station in India, this is what you need to do:

  1. Go to the police station within the jurisdiction of where you reside or from where the event took place.
  2. Meet the Station House Officer (SHO) and give your complaint orally or in a written form. If you give the complaint orally, the officer will convert it into a written form which you will need to sign.
  3. Make sure you keep a photocopy of the complaint after it is written.
  4. Necessary action will take place after filing the complaint. In case the police station you filed the complaint in is not a Jurisdictional Station then the complaint will be transferred to the Jurisdictional Police station and the required action will be taken.

Do remember

A police complaint is filed against police officials who show misconduct towards citizens. It is an individual’s right to file a police complaint if he/she feels that their rights were encroached upon.
