ANI General News
In a fresh decision, the Rajasthan government on Monday decided to begin registration of FIR's at Superintendent of Police's office, in case of concerned police stations not registering the complaint.
The decision came after a high-level meeting with officials was convened by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today. In the meeting, it was decided that an FIR can be lodged at SP's office if a police station refuses to register the same in connection with any case. This facility will be made available to the public from June 1.
The CM has also directed that a departmental inquiry must be done in connection with all the cases where a police station refuses to register FIR.
The action by the Chief Minister is being seen in the light of an increasing number of complaints regarding non-registration of FIRs at the police stations.
The meeting was attended by state police Chief Kapil Garg, additional chief secretary, Rajiv Swaroop and other senior police officers.
