Suppose you have lost your class 10 mark sheet when you were travelling in a local train. You appeal to the authorized education board say CBSE to issue you a duplicate of the lost mark sheet. The board asks you to file an FIR and a newspaper ad stating that you have lost the original mark sheet. This helps the board know that you have genuinely lost your said mark sheet and if anyone else finds it cannot misuse it in any form as it becomes invalid and the duplicate issued to you becomes the new original valid document.
