If your case is very urgent, you may want to see the Officer in Charge of Station (OCS). He is in a position to arrange an immediate visit to the crime scene.
A crime in which a personal injury has been sustained requires you to obtain a P3 report. The P3 form is provided free of charge at any police station and should be filled by the police who receives the crime report and a medical examiner.
If in any case there is loss of property then police will issue an abstract with particulars of the lost property.
After making the initial report and recording a statement, you might be directed to a different section to report crimes of specific nature. For instance, gender violence, child molestation, among others.
At the end, the perpetrator is summoned or a warrant of arrest issued.
