I was driving my car on a highway. A small girl rushed into the road while trying to cross it. My car hit the girl because of which she has fracture in her leg (requires operation) and bruises in her hand. The girl was crossing from left to right side of the road, and the car hit the girl on extreme right side of the road, trying to avoid her I had to move to left. I slowed down the car but seeing villagers rush towards me, I drove to the nearest police station.
The compliant by girl's father mentions that I was driving rash and negligent. They have mentioned my name also in the complaint. The FIR mentions that I have been booked under Sec 279, 337 of IPC 1860 and R/W 187 of IMV Act.
After getting the IMV Certificate for vehicle and Bond/Surety for me, they have released me and the car.
My Car has valid comprehensive insurance and all necessary documents.
I saw through the net that punisments for those booked under above sections are punishable with fine or imprisonment or both.
Are there any chances of me being punished with imprisonment?
Will these cases against me be problem for my job (i am an asst. manager at govt. of india owned bank)?
Can I go outside India until this cases are pending? Should I seek permission from court or police?
If the case is over only with a fine, will all charges against me cleared after paying the fine?
I have paid the girl some amount for her immediate medical expenses, though she is entitled for a claim of insurance?
Please help me.
