Manipur Chief Minister Shri N. Biren Singh said that the three criminal laws implemented across the country will be of great help to the people as there are provisions for maximum of two adjournments in court cases and filling Zero FIR at any police station.

Addressing a function held at Imphal on Monday  (1st July 2024) in connection to the enactment of three new criminal laws, Shri Biren Singh said that three laws- Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam have provisions to file FIRs in one’s own dialect.

He said that these laws will be very effective, however at the same time the implementation part is also very crucial.

Zero FIR may be registered irrespective of the area where the offence is committed. The police, in such a case, can no longer claim that they have no jurisdiction. Such a FIR is then later transferred to the police station that has the actual jurisdiction so that investigation can begin.
