As the offences are non compoundable but still the case can be closed and you can be acquitted, if the complainant and other witnesses turn hostile which means they will have to deny something like that happened. The case can be closed only after trial or you have to file petition before high court for quashing, better to close it in trial court.

Dear Sir

Since section 385 IPC is non compoundable so your Advocate advised to go to High Court.
Section 385 IPC deals with the punishment for an attempt of extortion. It must be understood that even putting a person under the fear of injury of any kind is enough to attract punishment under this section. It is cognizable, bailable and non-compoundable offence and is triable by a Magistrate.
