File a Police Report Online
Now you can make the initial police entry / complaint, without going to the police and this facility is provided online. We may ask you to file a complaint to the police, even in the case of an Internet related issue.
This is how a police report needs to be filled without going to the Police in Sri Lanka. It is really useful for those who do not like to waste time in a police station to file the initial report. Plus the IGP has a record of your complaint. Therefore, it cannot be ignored easily. Sometimes when it is a critical situation, the police may require your presence.
Therefore, Hithawathi would like to give you the following approach to file a police complaint from home. We currently give everyone a general URL and in the future, it is expected to introduce a separate link for those who complain through Hithawathi!
In this form, the type of your complaint should be selected as “Cybercrime”.
