Since the chargesheet has been filed the trial will now begin, so your cousin has to contest the case on merits. Alternatively, he may convince the courier company to agree to an out of court settlement and withdraw the complaint against him.

Once he is no bail he would attend the court on the date as fixed by the court for his apperances.
After the police submits charge sheet he will have to attend the court again and face trial.
As ling as trial goes on he is not gotten rid of the case.

Hi, You have to verify in the FIR and Charge sheet under which offence  police has registered the Complaint. If the offence is compoundable then only you can entered into compromise with the Complainant and his consent is very important and if it is not Compoundable then you can't compromise the offence.

If the police have registered the complaint under minor or petty offence, he may admit the charges before court and  get out of the case by paying the penalty or fine imposed by court in this regard.  Let him attend the police station and get a clear picture of the case on the lines explained above and try to solve the issue instead of stretching it any further. 
Alternately he can fight it out through a lawyer which may not be worth enough per cost and time involved.
