The accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt before the court of law. While arrested, an accused has the right to appeal, right to humane treatment, and right to family visits.
Other rights of an accused charged with criminal offence comprise:
• Right to know the accusations and charges

A false FIR will certainly not affect one’s career until he/she is proven guilty. Besides that, a false FIR’s effect on your job also depends upon the HR policy of the company you are working with.
The best option in such scenarios for the falsely/ wrongly charged person is to seek the intervention of the Hon’ble High Court U/s 482, CrPC to have the false FIR Quashed.
No, you have to contact the cybercrime cell in Chandigarh which is located in Sector-17, Chandigarh. So instead of visiting your local police station, you need to move to the cybercrime cell of your area to lodge a complaint regarding any cybercrime.
As against popular belief, quashing of FIR is not a right positioned in law, but, it is a matter of discretion of the High Court which can issue direction to any subordinate mechanism of the state while watching the interest of justice. A quashing of FIR is entertained only after accused has been charged. Before that, the accused has a right to refute the charges in front of the magistrate by defeating prima-facie of the prosecution’s case. Therefore, until an accused has not been charged by the magistrate as adverse to law, the High Court will have no reason to interfere.
An accused is not presumed to be guilty until he/she is proved guilty in court. The plea for anticipatory bail can be filed under Section 438 of CrPC under a reasonable apprehension of being wrongly accused of a non-bailable offence and to save from being detained.
Usually in India, courts accord an anticipatory bail for 30 days which can be further prolonged with the application of regular bail. However, if the court is satisfied with some particular conditions and has not specified the validity of anticipatory bail, then it will remain valid even after 30 days under the discretion of court till the disposal of the case.
