Please help charged wrong for call center cyber crime

My brother is an IT engg and he started his business of International call center on aug 2017 & was running it successfully. He had agreements with all his employers from Australia & UK. Police did a SUO-Moto & raided his center and arrested him and sealed his office even after showing all the docs he had on oct,on-charge that he had accepting payments VIA bitcoins from his employers which was also mentioned on the agreements of the projects as a mean of investment.Now a wrong FIR has been filed by the police and its been filed as he had been calling people in Australia & UK accepting payments illegally from them impersonating as a different company which was not the case as he had been accepting payments only from the companies he had agreements with; via bitcoins. He was charged as well saying bitcoins are illegal in India. Now he has been charged under Sec 120b/419/420/467/471 of IPC. He got an interim bail the next day itself as there has been no complain against him of fraud, it was a personal SUO-MOTO sourced information based on which the police conducted the raid. Now he needs to meet the IO twice every next week but they are keeping him for more 4 hours questioning him different things & forcing him to not consult with any advocate anymore. He is quite afraid now as what to do next as police also informed him they will apply for bail rejection saying he is non-co operative with them. Will he get arrested again on the next hearing if police is applying for his bail rejection? Chargesheet has already been filed and he is on interim bail right now. He is afraid that police can do anything if they feel like as they are harassing him by questioning him for more than 4-5 hours every week on the IO meet & indirectly threatening him that his bail application will be cancelled as all senior police officers will stand and say against him being non-co- operative.

Contest the case through an eminent lawyer.Unless knowingly or wantonly committed any crime, need not worry as the Cyberlaw is in the primitive stage to fix.
