two years ago I accidentally trespassed into a house in an inebriated state. It was an accident and they were independent houses and all the houses look exactly the same. since I was drunk the people in the house, who were bachelors, thought i was an intruder and started beating me up until my friends came and intervened. everything was calm and cool but i lost my cool and i went against the inhabitants of the house for beating me (i just shouted at them and i asked them to lodge a police complaint ; yeah, i know, it is my stupidity) so they lodged a complaint with the police.
the police took me to the police station and scolded me for being so irresponsible. after that i don't know what happened the inhabitants wrote something on a paper and i was asked to pay a fine of 1500 in the court. i was sent after spending around 1 hr in the police station and the next day i went to the court and paid the fine. the police there assured me that it was a petty case and nothing to worry at all.
currently am not working and am preparing for government competitive exams and the incident happened in chennai and now i live in hyderabad. the police station which took me in was also not the place i used to live while i was in chennai.
sir my question is
I don't know if an FIR has been registered, all remember was the house owners writing something on a white paper, the police in the court assured me that this is a petty offense just like a traffic violation and I need not worry about it. But now I am worried about it.
If I were to get selected in a government job or any other job for that matter, will this case jeopardize my career and my life?
will i be treated as a criminal equivalent to a person who is sent to jail???
You have appeared in court and paid the fine, but you still ignorent that what charges are framed on you for this fine/penalty? in the receipt and court order everything is mentioned
