The appointment of District Complaints Officers under CrPc 22-A/22-B will be helpful in preventing the registration of false FIRs. With the assistance of SP complaints, cases will be registered only on the basis of strong evidences and a proper inquiry. It will reduce the number of false FIRs against innocent citizens and will also decrease incidents of abuse of power or high handedness at Police Station level.
