Should i disclose car accident case in bank po joining?

I met with an car accident in 2015 

booked under IPC 279 338 304A

Outcome = acquittal in 2017 

Today i hv cleared IBPS PO exam

in joining formalities there is attestation form 

that requires me to declare criminal antecedents. 
since no case is pending now 
I am really scared that if I disclose my case i will be 

rejected. Please guide me 

i request ur sincere guidance. 
should i disclose my case

At present there are no cases against you, you write it NO.  If past years asked, you write as one case and acquitted and at present, there are no cases.

Bank Officer needs to be a trustworthy person to be successful in the profession. If an Officer hides the fact, perhaps it may lead to more inconvenience in future. 

Best wishes for a peaceful career as a trustworthy Bank Officer.

No you are not suppose to write 'yes' in the criminal antecedent column. You can write 'No', provided the complainant or State has not challenge it any superior court. Criminal antecedent and acquittal stands on different footing. Criminal antecedent means pending criminal cases which are pending or where you have been convicted or have undergone imprisonment. Even paying fine doesn't count under criminal antecedent!
