Legal Action Against Filing False FIR
What legal actions can be taken against a person on breaking of perjury laws and on filing false police report?
- Sector-1, Noida
Yes. A peace officer commits perjury when he or she intentionally makes any material statement in a police report regarding suspected criminal activity, knowing the information is false and then filing the false report with his or her employment agency. If discovered, the officer is subject to prosecution for either a misdemeanor or a felony.
