British Embassy 

What to do if you are a victim of crime

The Embassy offers general information about local police and legal procedures. They can’t give you legal advice, but can put you in touch with a local lawyer.
If you need medical treatment, the Embassy can help you to contact a local doctor.

If you want, the Embassy can contact your relatives and friends and let them know what has happened. In some cases, the Embassy can offer financial assistance. 

They cannot collect evidence or investigate crimes ourselves, and in many countries investigating authorities and the courts will refuse to answer enquiries from other people and organisations, including their staff.

So, you should consider appointing a local lawyer who can look after your interests in court, and follow any trial for you. The Embassy can give you a list of local English-speaking lawyers. They would not ordinarily attend a court case involving a British national and cannot influence the outcome of any trial.

Back in the UK, you may feel you would benefit from extra support to help you cope with the effects of the crime. Organisations such as Victim Support can help.

The Embassy have also produced a leaflet called Victims of crime abroad which offers more detailed information.

The non-resident Indians (NRIs) from Punjab will now have an exclusive facility for filing their complaints with the 6 NRI Punjab police stations.

The NRIs can file their complaints with the state police and will also have the facility of monitoring the status of their complaints online with the launch of these 6 NRI police stations.

The first NRI police station was inaugurated by Akali Dal president and Faridkot Member of Parliament (MP) Sukhbir Badal.

The other NRI police stations have been set up in Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur, Kapurthala, Moga and Nawanshahr.


Scores of NRIs, particularly from the districts where these NRI police stations have been set up, have migrated from Punjab over the last eight decades are settled in the US, Canada, Britain, European nations and several other countries in the world.


Badal said the police officials at the NRI stations would deal exclusively with NRI complaints to ensure speedy disposal.

He added that the new NRI police stations had been set up in Punjab following a promise made by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal to Punjabi NRIs at a conference of NRIs held in Chandigarh and Jalandhar.


The Punjab police officials said majority of the complaints by NRIs were regarding property and land disputes.


With due respect I want to state that I Harbans Kaur W/o S. Nirmal Singh resident of H.No. 15305 street no. 23, Ram Nagar (Near Sangeet Cinema), Ludhiana.
From past 9 years we’ve been living in United States of America. We purchased some land on 13 August,1997 in Chohan Nagar ,Dugri ,Ludhiana by VASIKA NUMBER- 1063. I have INTKAAL NUMBER – 6981 registered on my name. I have all the documents, evidences and registry regarding my piece of plot in my possession registered on my name.
In January 2009, after 9 years we came back to India in winter holidays. When we visited our plot we saw that some land of our plot was captured by Dr. Sadhu Singh Fauji, who owns a plot adjoining our plot. When we asked him to return our land he told us to get our plot re-measured and lied to us that he is the rightful owner of the land. Hence, he wasted our 2 months on this whole process.
We forwarded our complaint to SSP LUDHIANA, from where it was forwarded to MODEL TOWN POLICE STATION (LUDHIANA). But from there we are getting no response, half year has gone by but still we are in no position to get our land back, the in charge of MODEL TOWN POLICE STATION (LUDHIANA) is paying no heed to our continuous requests, when asked for proper action he replied to us that “ this is not AMERICA, this is India and here the work is done, in this pace only”. We have to report to MODEL TOWN POLICE STATION (LUDHIANA) every week for 2-3 times but no. action has been taken regarding our case.
Even the in charge of MODEL TOWN POLICE STATION (LUDHIANA) are not registering F.I.R against the culprits, they have stopped listening to us. Due to all of this commotion we are not able to return back to America, we are suffering very heavily because all of this.
When we asked Dr. Sadhu Singh to leave our land, he told us to do whatever we can; he threatened us that he will kill us one by one if we will try to register any complaint against him.
Therefore, this is my humble respect that please take some appropriate action against the culprits,and please see to it that I can regain all of my land that has been illegally captured. Being senior citezens we are not able to handle this constant strain that we are being put through from past 6 month. I shall be very grateful to you if you will take some appropriate action against this matter.
Yours sincerely,
Harbans Kaur
W/o S. Nirmal Singh

One of the most developing sectors of emergency support in Punjab is the health sector. New and redeveloped hospitals have their own Accident and Emergency Departments, each with their own emergency Ambulances.

All citizens of Punjab would be able to access an ambulance within 15 minutes of calling.

For whole of Punjab the emergency number would be 102 . The control room for this is being set in Govt. Hospital, Amritsar.

In the first phase 90 ambulances wold be stationed at prominent points and roads in whole of Punjab.
