The best solution is to appear before DYSP and narrate him all the facts and circumstances clearly. You won't get into any kind of trouble as the FIR is not against you... so there is nothing to worry about

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

When the accused person is absconding, police have power to send notice under section 299 for statement of witness(you). Further its necessary that you appear before the DYSP of inquiry and for submitting your statement.

I would advice- Never deny telling truth and co-operate with police in their investigation. If you want you can take help of lawyer near you to accompany with you to police station.
