Police Clearance Certificate for passport if criminal case pending


I am from Mumbai, but living in Qatar. Last year my husband went India to settle the property disputes with his cousins in Nagpur. During the final settlement discussion, some heated argument arises and it ended with mild violence. Next day police arrested my husband Magistrate denied bail and send him to jail. But next day he got the bail. He is an accused in a criminal case. Trial started and charges are framed. I am sure this trial will take at least 3-4 years. I am still in Qatar working and living with our children's. Now my husband's residency visa got expired and now he has to apply fresh for his residency visa. For residency visa he needs a Police Clearance Certificate which is issued from Passort Seva Kendra. 1. Can he get a Police Clearance Certificate when he is a accused in a criminal case and trial is going on? 2. Can he travel abroad during this trial period on visitor visa? 3. Can he apply for renewal of his passport if it is going to expire soon?
