section 354 says that Assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty. if the statement of girl is not again you, then no case is made out against you. you have tried your best to depose the evidence of girl in your favour.

Dear questioner, first of all go for the bail. Get the copy of FIR Engage a counsel and file your bail application. Then let the case go hand in hand if you are not guilty be patient. Everything will be fine. Let the evidence come on record. It's easy to get such FIR registered but difficult to go in the court in the lack of specific evidence and witnesses.

Since it is a criminal trial, now after framing of charges, the case will will be fixed for evidence of prosecution witnesses. Once the evidence is closed, your statement will be recorded by the judge putting all the incriminating evidence which you will deny and thereafter you may lead your evidence. After evaluating the evidence, the court will pass judgment of either acquittal or conviction.
