Need advice on fir with section 337


My husband met with a car accident as he was coming on the wrong side and hit against a Tavera. He got severely injured and hospitalized immediately. The driver and the passengers of the Tavera had very minor cuts but my husband was in coma. Now they have put FIR against my husband for 337. They do not want to compromise. I don�t want a conviction as it will impact his visa. Kindly advice what can be done

Have an Advocate? Yes! Switched to new one. IPC 337- Whoever causes hurt to any person by doing any act so rashly or negligent as to endanger human life, or the personel safety of others shall be punished with imprisonment of either descripttion for term which may extend to six months or with fine which may extend to five hundred rupees, or with both, Offence is compoundable by the person to whom hurt is caused, with the permission of court. Offence is cognizable, bailable, trail by any magistrate.

I am in the process of getting a lawyer. But just wanted to understand the kind of punishment my husband can face and it�s impact on his visa. He has got multiple fractures and dislocation and the other car people are all fit and fine but since he was on the wrong side, I am worried about the fir and case.

Not to worry, few countries have right side driving rules and few have left side driving rules. Whereas in India one should follow left proper lane, if not drive on proper lane, then its punishable with fine from Rs2000/- to 5000/- as court challan, u/s 66 r/w 192 of MVA (Motor Vehicle Act) Good Luck
