Sample complaint letter to Police Inspector.
The Police Inspector,
Police Station Name
I beg to lodge the following report about a theft which took place in my house last night. It was in the small hours of the morning (between 2 and 4 a.m.) that the theft occurred. We were sleeping on the roof of the house. On hearing some noise I woke up. To my surprise I found the light was on in the lower room. I suspected that somebody had broken in to the house. I got up and shouted, “Who is there in the room?” As soon as I spoke, I heard the sound of footsteps of at least two men, hurriedly running out of the house. My suspicion of theft was confirmed. I went down with my brother with sticks in our hands. We went into the room where light was on. We discovered that the thieves had entered by breaking the window bars and had run away with gold and silver ornaments worth Rs. 218,000 and silk and woolen clothes worth Rs. 5000, besides currency notes of the value of Rs. 5500 and some silver coins and small change. In addition, they also took away “HMT” golden wrist watch and a ‘Parker 51’ fountain pen. They had broken open the boxes containing ornaments, clothes and cash. The empty boxes were found lying outside the house on the road.
I enclose a detailed list of the articles stolen.
I shall be obliged if you kindly take quick action to trace the culprits and recover the lost articles and cash.
