A proper FIR was registered 5 days later after he personally appealed to a senior police inspector for help.
Taxi driver Raees Qureshi (33) of Amrut Nagar in Mumbra approached police to report a burglary in his house, only to be told to "forget" stolen jewellery and money as there was "slim chance of recovery anyway".
A proper FIR was registered five days later after he personally appealed to a senior police inspector for help. Qureshi returned home after work on Novemeber 26 night to find that his flat in Jamila Tower had been broken into.
"Rs 80,000, gold jewellery worth Rs1 lakh and my gas cylinder had been stolen. I immediately went to Mumbra police station to lodge a compaint. However, the duty officer told me there was no use reporting theft of cash and jewellery and only registered an FIR for the cylinder. They behaved as if they were doing me a favour, saying a police complaint would help me get a new cylinder," he said.
After applying for a cylinder replacement, Qureshi consulted friends and decided to approach senior police inspector Arun Sonde.
"I told him facts of the case and urged him to do the needful. Rs 1.8 lakh might not be a big amount for a lot of people, but it is for me," he said. On December 2, Qureshi received a call from Mumbra Police Station to lodge a second complaint and a proper FIR mentioning all stolen property was registered.
Sonde confirmed the incident but declined to give details. "Qureshi did come to me and I instructed my officers to registered a proper complaint," he said.
