I've already replied on 'cops on the street --145th post. However for convenience - i've copied the same below:-

Hi Rayman,

Firstly - its recommended to retain a Lawyer. The reason - as to why you should retain a lawyer might sound silly in a public forum -- however if you are curious enough to know -pls PM.

Re the rest of the question - You could be charged under 2 offences. I've enumerated the charges and fines respectively. The bold letters applies to you --the rest is for the info of others.

Charge 01--'Recklessly or in a dangerous manner or at a dangerous speed' -->

a fine not less than one thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty fifty thousand rupees,

[ and on a second conviction to a fine not less than two thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty five thousand rupees and the suspension of his driving licence, and on a third or subsequent conviction, to a fine not less than three thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty five thousand rupees and the cancellation of his driving licence or to rigorous imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months to both such fine and imprisonment.]

Charge 02 -Negligently or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the highway

a fine not less than one thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty five thousand rupees,

and on a second conviction to a fine not less than two thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty five thousand rupees and on a third or subsequent conviction to a fine not less than three thousand five hundred rupees and not exceeding twenty five thousand rupees and the suspension of his driving licence for a period of six months.
