If you are charged under any non-bailable offence and was not yet arrested and move to outside the country, you can be in trouble as the authorities can issue a look out notice. You will have to now approach high court and file a writ to get an order directing to cancel the look out notice and it is almost impossible if parties have evaded arrest and flee to outside India. Another procedural option is to surrender and go for bail, then proceed to quash the FIR in the high court. it is legally correct that look out notice issued by the police chief as the local police do it with the order of the commissioner's office. In case local police says that they have not initiated this it means the aggrieved parties directly approached the commissioner office.
