Don't discriminate against minorities while registering FIRs: Centre
The Centre has asked all the states and union territories not to discriminate against minorities while registering an FIR as timely filing of chargesheet and speedy trial will restore the faith of different communities.
New Delhi: The Centre has asked all the states and union territories not to discriminate against minorities while registering an FIR as timely filing of chargesheet and speedy trial will restore the faith of different communities.
The Home Ministry said, as per the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), a police officer is duty-bound to register a case on the basis of any information disclosing a cognisable offence and an FIR has to be registered irrespective of territorial jurisdiction.
The Ministry has asked the state governments to ensure that the instructions are circulated amongst all concerned departments, organisations and others for strict compliance. The advisory, which was sent on Monday, comes in the backdrop of lynching of a Muslim man over rumours of eating beef in Dadri in Uttar Pradesh.
