There is no question of legal complication, but in answering or complying with the law. This is unavoidable as the victim has dies. An FIR has been lodged. Your friend is required to appear in Court, as and when summoned, and answer the charges. The only question is as to the offences charged. Your friend may require to engage a local lawyer.
Simultaneously, there dependents of the deceased would approach the MACT for compensation. He would be a respondent in the matter.
