Take action against Police Inspector for not filing FIR in cognisable offence: Karnataka High Court

The Court noted that as per the directions of the Supreme Court, action must be taken against erring officials who do not register an FIR when a cognisable offence is disclosed.

The Dharwad Bench of the Karnataka High Court recently directed Superintendent of Police of Uttara Kannad district to enquire into and take suitable action against a police inspector for failing to register a first information report (FIR) in a cognisable offence [Ganesh S Hegde v. State of Karnataka and Ors].
