Anyway the there is no case for police to intervene as it is an employment dispute.
A legal practioner can file a case if there is withholding of pay etc.

Since your friend has already intimated the management to adjust the remaining notice period from his salary there is no breach of contract and legal action does not arise on this score. However, if your friend has not complied with the handing over formalities, if any, as per the terms of appointment the management is at liberty to take legal action for such non-compliance

"Your service can be dispensed at any time from either side by giving atleast one month notice or salary "
Has your colleague completed all the procedures before leaving the the organization? It seems that your colleague has left after giving his resignation before completing the exit procedures.
The HR is free to follow legal action on strength of the clauses are in appointment letter. there is nothing much in "Notice Period" matter can be settled with cost.
But it is not understood what sort of complain they would like to bring against your colleague in an FIR with police, is a matter of concern.
In my suggestion your colleague should consult a lawyer(Labour) with all documents and correspondence in the matter to decide the future course of action.
