In property matter police dont have jurisdiction but for theft you can file police complaint if police deny to file F.I.R. send your application for police complaint to the same police station via R.P.A.D. and send c.c . to police commisioner and District collector. You can file civil suit for tresspass in your property.

Yes, definitely, your case is more then enough to take appropriate remedy under the criminal law. For the said purpose you can file criminal complain under Section 441, 425 and 378, etc. If after filing of the complain if the police is ignoring to registered complain you can file writ petition under the constitution of India in the Hon'ble Gujarat High Court so that court can direct police authority to registered a FIR.
