• I am harassed by a person to give police statement

Please suggest can i refuse to give statement regarding my own abortion to police. Because a female has put FIR against his husband that he got my abortion done and police has asked for my statement in it.

You cannot be forced to confess or make a statement. Meet a lawyer with a copy of FIR so that after a threadbare perusal of FIR and clarity of the role attributed to you he can advise you what ought to be done in the given circumstances.
