is road accident is comes under crime?

Help!!!!!

Hi All

i have a serious problem. i am selected in one IT company and soon i will be joining the company. but company does check the background of the person. according to the company policy person must not have any pending  criminal case. And few days before i met with a road accident and the other party (on feet single man) filed a FIR and and case against me under IPC 279 & 337. 

so i want to know whether this road accident comes under criminal act or not, and if it comes can i get some relief from company as accident was not intentional.

Please help me i am in big depression. 

 

Thanks in advance...

yes, these sections are counted under criminal case.

Of course these sections are criminal offences. But if you can prove that  it was an accident only and you were not under the influence of alcohol or something like that the company will not take it seriously on par with other criminal cases.

Hi All

Thanks for your reply...

Actully company is aking a affidavit in 100 Rupees Indian non-judicial stamp paper that  there are no criminal cases pending against in me.

but as you all know i have this case panding :(  so please tell me what should i do?

definitely you should mention the case in the affidavit. You should add  additional information regarding the nature of the case and give a declaration that it is only an accident and it is not an offence of moral turpitude

AS Mr. Magundhan says is right. I would like to add one thing, signing or filing any incorrect affidavit is a crime and you may commit another crime if you depose an incorrect statement by way of affidavit.

IF YOU GIVE WRONG INFORMATION IN AFFIDAVIT IT WILL BE AN PUNISHABLE OFFENCE UNDER IPC.
