Anyone can register an FIR on behalf of the victim and report the crime of rape. In general, a woman cannot be forced to go to a police station to give her statement. The police will record her statement only at her house, or at a place that she chooses. You can request the police to come to your location to record your information. The police must make sure a woman police officer records the statement, and that some family member or social worker is present there.
If the survivor of such a crime is mentally or physically disabled, then the police have to make sure they record her statement in a place of her choice. They also must ensure that any special help that is needed is available.
If a police officer refuses to register a crime of this nature i.e. rape, acid attacks etc., in some cases he can be punished with imprisonment for a term between six months and two years, and will also be fined.
If you are a victim or you know of an incident of rape, call 1091 which is the Women’s Helpline Number and give all the information that you know about the rape. You can also call 100 to contact the police station to complain about an incident.0
