May be your case is genuine... Bt when you will approach police station police may ask you several question regarding delaying in registration of FIR... Which will be benefiting the accused to get free fom clutches of law. I'm sure you guys can't produce past evidence such.... However don't think much go ahead approach police station and file the FIR against the accused under pocso act
