In India, if the student is accused in an FIR related to a major offence (Assault, Attempt to Murder, Rape, Attempt to Rape, Sexual Assault) he is said to have a Criminal record against him.

Coming to the rescue of students who may face difficulty in landing a job because of police cases for leading protests, the Supreme Court had ruled that petty offences of the past, like shouting slogans, in the curriculum vitae should not ordinarily be a ground to deny a job. Petty offences don't affect much. But the offences for which the punishment which may be not less than 1 year may affect. But as we can see you have a criminal record under sections 325,307, 405,417, 420 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 out which 307,325 are not at all petty offences, as the punishment for offences like attempt of murder and voluntarily causing hurt is up to 7 years and may extend more.

If the student has criminal charges against him in a court, the student may face constant problems including:-

  1. Court Appearances - The Student will have to make a lot of court appearances between classes and even during exams. This interferes with studies.
  2. Mental Torture - Preparing for testimony, the fear of conviction, fear of prison, fear of sentencing prevents a student from focusing on future development and on his coursework.
  3. Ostracism – They will be ostracized as the other students will not talk to such a student.
  4. The student may be expelled from the university or affiliated college. He might not get a decent job and other things.
  5. Suspicion – If anything goes wrong in the college the first suspect is almost always a student who has a pending FIR/Criminal record.
  6. Job Limitations - Most Corporate HRs draw a line at any student who is accused of attempted murder. Likewise pending firs for serious offenses usually ensure that govt jobs are not as easy to get.
  7. Travel problems - The Student may face difficulty while applying for a passport

I hope this resolves your query.

If the accused are convicted then they would be debarred from every govt. jobs and no private firm will employe a criminal. The career will be ruined totally. Even involvement in such henious crime would adversely effect their career and will cause a great dent.

can I lodged FIR to wife under section 353

Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Advocate)     04 February 2022

as far as govt job is concerned he is debarred even druing proceedings.  Mere drop of charge on technical ground or compormiose/compounding will not heled.  He can think of govt job only if


  1. acruitted on merits
  2. acquitted before getting overage.

Wether you are student or not this doesn't matter once convicted you will a Criminal.

Sections imposed against you are of serious nature.As case is in trial stage nothing to worry but if convicted your life will be ruined.

Yes there is an option you can approach the Higher courts but it will be a long battle ahead.

May Justice Prevail
