No I do not agree with above type of format. It is a case of information relating to loss/misplacement of documents. It is informatory in nature.
F.I.R. (First Information Report) pertain to registration of cognizable offense only.

Even I lost my scan copies of Passport too, can I apply for the duplicate passport? I can remember my passport number. Give me some ideas.

Dear Sandeep,

You can apply for duplicate passport. i.e you can apply for re-issue of passport accompanying following documents;
1. Your Date of birth proof
2. Your Present Address proof
3. Affidavit stating the loss of your passport ( annexure L)
4. If you have the copy of pass port, then first and last 2 pages.

For more details you refer the website;
