Kanpur Police—tech savvy in making—has lodged a first of its own kind e-complaint at Kohna police station based on the information revealed through the Facebook profile. Kanpur Police had set up an account for itself at the social-networking site Facebook in a bid to improve the law and order situation and fortunately this experiment seems to bring grand success, as just a week after the account went online, first complaint has been lodged.

Tabish Ahmad, a citizen through his Facebook account, posted on Kanpur police wall that he had lost his bag containing important business documents and left his personal contact number and address on FB wall. Taking a quick cognizance in this connection, Kohna Station Officer Alok Mani Tripati contacted Ahmad immediately to get additional inputs in the case. Subsequently, Police had lodged an FIR in this connection and a sub-inspector has been given the duty to investigate this matter. Ahmad on the other hand was also informed of all the developments regarding the case through Facebook profile.

Kanpur Deputy IG Mutha Ashok Jain reportedly said, “Lodging a complaint in Kohana police station through Facebook will send a message to the public that police would file a report on any complain that they receive through Facebook”. According to reports, Kohna's Station Officer Alok Mani Tripati said, “Since it was a minor incident, we took the print out—hard copy—of Tabish Ahmad's wall post from Facebook based on that we filed an FIR and forwarded it for further proceedings.” Tripati said if they get information on a major incident like murder or dacoity on Facebook then the police would go to the complainant and would file the FIR on paper.

Kanpur Police had recently linked three police stations of Kohana, Kakadeo and Naubasta with its Facebook profile in order to strengthen the law and order situation and to make the working easier. DIG asked the police stations - Kakadeo and Naubasta - to encourage the people in their area to file reports through Facebook. Kanpur police is also planning to post photographs of wanted criminals on this page so that they could be traced faster and likely to invite people to complain against any police officer who takes bribe on the condition that the informant's name will never be disclosed.[3]
