Firstly, you'll need to hire an advocate to get your brother regular bail. The charges levelled against your brother are come under non bailable offence, so grant of bail is at the discretion of the magistrate trying your brother's case. Section 437 of CrPC lays down provision, wherein, regular bail may be applied by the accused.

On the basis of FIR under section 420 and 406 and subsequent raid on the premises of the business and recovery of subsequent related material lead to addition of other sections in the FIR.

On the basis of complaints the police can investigate the matter and add or delete sections.

Please arrange your documents to prove your innocence and apply for the bail.

These sections ( 467,468 & 471)are cognizable and need proper reasons and ground to get bail. Immediate bail may not be a possibilityin these sections from the sessions court and after rejection you can move to High Court.

1. The cyber cell is a specialised police unit and hence enjoys all the powers which a normal police force enjoys.

2. The section of 467 and 468 IPC do not apply here as no element of forgery transpires from his allegations.

3. If your case is properly represented the bail should be granted in the next hearing date. So engage a good criminal lawyer.

1. The complaint before cyber cell would enable them to go ahead with the legal action.

Though there is no cyber crime involved in this, it may be on the pressure of the high level officials involved in this,

This can be challenged in the court of law only.

2. You will get the copy of the charge sheet once it is submitted to court, you can verify the documents they rely upon and prepare your defence accordingly.

3. On the basis of the FIR and the practical issues, you can plead the grounds in your application for bail.
