What is the exact charge?
Your friend needs to consult an advocate and try and defend himself.
But if he has actually done the irregularity alleged,then he will find himself in problem to escape consequences of his act.
He may probably think in terms of accepting the mistake done and seek mercy.

Firstly, let your friend decide whether he accepts the changes levelled against him and if he does, what would be punitive action bank will take as per rules if he conveys his unconditional admission. If it is anything less than termination of services, like stoppage of increment, suspension without wages , demotion etc, he should consider it as his job is safe.
If he believes that the charges are 'framed' and are not true, then he should defend his case in the enquiry through permissible defense representative.
He needs to weigh in mind the consequences of both options by consulting good labour lawyer.
