In the Indian web-series TVF Pitchers, Why didn't Jeetu and Yogi just lodge an FIR against the hacker dungeon_master after he copied their idea?

He already broke their Hard-drive which consisted of Yogi's skype chats. He could have easily handled the case.

Note : A First Information Report (FIR) is a written document prepared by police organizations in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan when they receive about the commission of a cognizable offence.*

Answer is in the words of Ankit Bhardwaj in the meeting:

You can copyright a product not an idea.

I am not a legal person but as per show point of view this was the reason.

Its even a fact that Copyrights protect expression and patents protects inventions, and neither protect ideas. So there was no case.

Even if they do lodge FIR, they need to proof themselves right in court and that's not easy at all and even against a hacker who hold sex chats of Yogi and hold extra ordinary hacking abilities. And even Jitu destroyed their property and they can lodge cross case against them. And a court case takes years and lot of money to clear and for jobless people it will be too tough to handle.
