Delhi Police has launched a new "Lost Report" Android App which can be used to file report with Delhi Police if you have lost any article/document in Delhi . Earlier to file a lost report you had to go to the local police station and minimum 1-2 hours were wasted in filing a lost report . Like the police station lost reports , there will be no inquiry or investigation for such reports filed via the app , but you can use them as legal document wherever required . If you think that your belongings were not lost but stolen , then you will have to go to the police station to file a FIR .
After lodging the report you will get a LR no. which can be used to get the duplicate documents or for preventing misuse of the articles/documents (like in case of lost PAN card) . If you do not have Android smartphone , you can still lodge lost report online via Delhi Police website - Click here to file Lost report online .
"The app, Lost Report, was developed after complainants reported that a lot of time and patience went into getting complaints registered at the police station" said B S Bassi , Delhi Police commissioner .
