Seventeen years and counting. The illustrious show, ‘Police Filez’, has a long and glorious history. In 2020 also, it has a bright presence ever since it started back in the year 2003. The show is a factual drama that highlighted naissances of the Crime based on the true incidents. The idea of such truth-hunting ‘Docu-fiction’ was conceived by Late Shri Ashok Surana to aware the viewers about the malicious practices still happening in the society. Even till date, Police Filez observes its responsibility towards the viewers with utmost sincerity and devotion.

Likewise, a group of six adolescent girls were rescued from a Red-Light Area in Pune because of the awareness ‘Police Filez’ created. Mathurapur Thana rescued the lives from that place. Again, an adolescent from Gaighata Police station area filed a rape complaint against her father, after she watched few similar episodes in ‘Police Filez’ and gathered courage to speak up against the ill-treatment. In another incident, a case at Bongaon Police Station was closed for 31 years, the same sealed case was re-opened and such of the power of this program that case was served justice. These incidents prove that the show, has now over the period of time has achieved sky-touching success and the record is irresistible.
