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.

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.
