Contempt after compromise fraud


Respected Experts

Accused had a criminal complaint pending against him before a "Metropolitan Magistrate Court". He compromised with the Complainant and filed relevant applications before "Metropolitan Magistrate Court" and the court forwarded the matter to "Mediation Court"

"Mediation Court" was presided by "Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate"

Accused cheated Complainant and backed off from consent terms

A confusion is, that he is ideally guilty of contempt of two courts.

first is contempt of "Metropolitan Magistrate Court".  and second is contempt of mediation court which is "Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court".

Before which court should contempt proceedings happen, moreso can one court try trial of of contempt of both courts or is there another procedure.

Please assist and clarify the best.
