Police has registered FIR for rash driving when I hit front my car, it’s just small hit bumper damage, as the other people came hit me, I called police before they came other party agreed to compromise with compensation but thr police registered case against me.
How to quash 279 against? Can police withdraw the case or it has to go trial and contest.

The easier option is to plead guilty through an advocate and pay the fine.

The case would be registered u/s 279 with 337 or 338 or 304 A of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 but not singly under section 279 IPC, Recheck. Get the case compounded in Mediation Cell or Lok Adalat, otherwise quashing of FIR can be filed before High Court.
