The purpose of an (FIR) First Information Report is to document the information that has been brought to the attention of the authorities. This information, whether acquired in writing or verbally, is needed to be converted to a written report, which will be credited with initiating the criminal law enforcement process in the first place. A cognizable offense entitles the police to proceed with an arrest and investigation without the need for a warrant.
