Default Guys Serious problem - Urgent suggestion on Accident Case

Hello All, last year during new year eve I was driving back from Aurangabad to Mumbai. Somewhere on the Nagar highway between Aurganbad and Nagar, met with a small accident. A bike came in from from nowhere and applied sudden breaks, however the couple on the bike fell down and the lady suffered minor injuries. I was with my wife and two kids. I stopped my car and came out to see what actually had happened. Lot of people gathered and started giving thier opinions. In the meanwhile I offered the lady to be taken to the near by hospital which they agree and I did so. Took her to the hospital, gave her Rs 3000/- and then left from there. There was nothing serious from the look of the things that happned.

Now today I get a summon from Police station saying that FIR is lodged there and they have my name address and car number. One police man froom there came along with Local Mulund Police station guy and asked for the driver and the car. I was not at home. I spoke to them on the phone and they said they want to take the driver and the car. I dont know what to do. I have some contacts with whom I am trying to sort out this mess. But what now??? Any help or suggestions...

Clearly some experienced brain is behind this.
Talk to a lawyer and take an anticipatory bail if he suggests.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ADMIT THAT YOU HIT THE BIKE. ALWAYS SAY THAT THE BIKE HIT YOU.
The opposite side will try to make you say that you hit the bike, in which case you shall be in a big mess (if law follows its own course).
I have prior accident experience (my roommate had the actual incident), and this is from our own experience.

I would suggest consulting a lawyer immediately on this. Was the court summon for 1st hearing or thereafter? Your lawyer can always plead that you never received any intimation of the FIR.

I'm not sure if you have too many options

Do you have insurance?

Looks like the regular scam to claim insurance.

this is why sometimes i prefer to run away from the scene unless it aint serious.

the best thing will be to settle the issue with them directly and ask them to take the FIR back, instead of going to the court.

going to the court will be a lots of hassel and you never know when the case will close.

" I HATE THINS KIND OF PEOPLE, WHO GOTO THE POLICE STATION INSTEAD OF HELPING THEM" you should have left them.

Only insurance?? If the people on the other end are serious scammers they might even apply IPC 304 (culpable homicide) on aryashiv1. Thats why I suggested the bail.

Yes. Contact a good lawyer. Don't know what kind of contact you're referring to, why resort to such means when you are not at fault? In fact you took the lady to a hospital like a good citizen and even paid for her medical expenses. Was she injured severely?

Get a legal opinion from a good lawyer and then proceed.

Getting a lawyer is the best thing u can do first. Then i guess the best would be to go the concerned police post and get to know what the real situation is. I really feel ashamed and sorry to say this but 'GREASE'.

Default get a lawyer

contact a lawyer immediately and do not negotiate directly with the party, this is the regular scam to claim money from you and insurance company, probably a good lawyer is at the other end, you need to have your defence done by a good lawyer.

Thanks Guys. The police came to my home with an FIR to arrest the driver and take the car away. I am no way going to Nagar (my kids are so afraid already). I am taking help of my people who know these police men very well. They are saying just do the formality of getting arrested and release on bail same time. This way then case can come to court and further on. I am so distrubed guy..cant even type properly. I am those simple kinds of guy who is a so much a family man. Anways fingers crossed. In the meanwhile will speak to some lawyers if required, I have few in my office only (I work for a construction company so all kinds of people are present in office).

If u are a believer, then pray.

Thanks all you guys. Its great to be here on this forum. I am just tensed because these people came home when I was in office and you know what my little one 5 year old son said (his pic is there) to his mom "Mamma police wale papa ko le jayegne aur marenge". So innocent kids are.....

Anyways things are better now. My person (ex ACP with Mumbai police) had met the PSI at Mulund police station. He has taken time till Monday to get me to Nagar. The police team which came from Nagar has gone back. Tomorrrow I will be going to Mulund police station and find a solution this issue. Will be accompanied by a few ex Police walas whom I know. Lets hope for the best.

Do not worry aryashiv. You have not comitted any crime & you are not a criminal. so many accidents take place in a day and these are common in daily life.
If u have a valid Driving license & valid Insurance policy, ur saved.
Obtain the copy of FIR from the concerened police station, mostly they might have filed a hit & run case.
Be Brave, consult a good & known lawyer and move wisely.
Insurance people will take care of liabilties & damages.
