The attachment not found, besides by going through the papers it will not be possible to give a proper opinion, hence you may better approach your own lawyer or any other lawyer in the local and get a proper advise about filling up the applicaiton form

If you were arrested and a FIR was registered against your name then you have to reveal the correct details.

If you suppress them in the application and the authorities are coming to know about it during verification report about character and antecedents through police, it may attract adverse impact on your employment besides a criminal complaint if any.

Have faith in your lawyer, s/he is right, proceed accordingly.

You have already consulted your lawyer and he has properly advised you,  why do you hesitate to follow his advice which seems to be proper.

Bikash Mishra   16 May 2024

There are cognisable offences and noncognisable offences. A cognisable is an offence against the State. They are also loosely called police cases. Suppose you assault an individual and the individual makes a police complaint it is  a non-cognsiable offence. Police will take up the case only if the complainant wants it and not otherwise. In the case of a cognisable offence police has no option but to take up the case. That is called prosecution. It appears that in your case it was not a cognisable offence. That may be the reason your lawyer advised you to write 'No' against the question whether you were prosecuted. In a prosecution the State is the aggrieved party. Once you have engaged a lawyer, have faith in him.
