Solution

Ashok cannot be released and will be punished with heavy fine

Explanation:

"Ashok cannot be released and will be punished with heavy fine" is correct. 100 an emergency calling number of police can't be used so callously, it is provided to ensure the security of the general public and nation as a whole. Here Ashok not out of some security concern but for his personal benefit misused it. Further by spreading false information of bomb he created terror making him guilty of a criminal offense.  
"Ashok can be released by court because he had an important meeting at London" is incorrect as the court cannot evict a person once he is proved guilty, on a trivial reason for having a meeting.  
"Ashok has to be compensated by police because everyone call on 100" is incorrect. Police are not liable to pay any compensation to Ashok as he was guilty of offense and police only complied with its duty by putting him behind bars.  
"Ashok can stay in custody for 1 day only." is incorrect as there is no such law which states that punishment for such an offense is one day.  Decision of punishment lies in the hands of the court of Law.
