'How to write first information report' (FIR). It is a high mental burden for a common man in India or may be in other countries also. This letter can be used as an FIR or as General Diary( GD) sample application or letter. This letter is written to report a police station as a general diary.

The sample application is given at the end. Before reading the application, it is very compulsory to know the event about which this letter is being written to. It is because event detail is necessary to write the FIR or GD.
This is a real event happened with a simple girl when a cheater duped the girl and cheated her by transferring Rs 30 by hacking and telling that he is speaking from customer care center of a mobile company.For just an example, below is the process of transferring the mobile balance from one mobile to another and it is available publicly onvodafone site .
The donor needs to dial *131*15*Receiver's mobile number#
I am not disclosing the name of the company as it will be an unfair naming and defaming the company because the cheater didn't belong to that company. He used this only to dupe a girl for recharging his SIM.
The conversation is given below: The cheater called (from his mobile number "C") on mobile number "D" and said like this.
I want to send back the money. Your last few calls charges has been done by mistake and company wants to pay back those money on your phone. But I am unable to send money to your mobile number(D). It looks like there is no balance in your mobile. Please recharge your mobile. Please tell the recharged amount also. Then he instructed the code as highlighted in yellow color above.
Thus he get transferred the money on mobile C from mobile D.
These type of boys or men actually don't know the legal implication if it happen on them. Also this type of foolish girl are also who don't know the normal security rule.
Now here is the sample GD letter.
