First of all, you are asking Courts to impose cost on the defendant company, which in my opinion is not sustainable in the eyes of law at the current stage of legal proceedings. Once the company and its directors have been found guilty, the courts can surely award compensation under Section 357 & 357A of the Cr.P.C.
However, as per Section 357 and 357A of the Code of Criminal Procedure (Cr.P.C.), the Court may order payment of compensation by the convict to the victim/next of kin of victim.
In Hari Singh v. Sukhbir Singh & Ors. [(1988) 4 SCC 551], Hon'ble Supreme Court lamented the failure of the Courts in awarding compensation to thevictims in terms of Section 357 (1) of the Cr.P.C. The Apex Court recommended to all Courts to exercise the power available under Section 357 of the Cr.P.C. liberally so as to meet the ends of justice. The Court said:
"Sub-section (1) of Section 357 provides power to award compensation to victims of the offence out of the sentence of fine imposed on accused. It is an important provision but Courts have seldom invoked it. Perhaps due to ignorance of the object of it.
It empowers the Court to award compensation to victims while passing judgment of conviction.
In addition to conviction, the Court may order the accused to pay some amount by way of
compensation to victim who has suffered by the action of accused. It may be noted that this power of Courts to award compensation is not ancillary to other sentences but it is in addition thereto. This power was intended to do something to reassure the victim that he or she is not forgotten in the criminal justice system. It is a measure of responding appropriately to crime as well of reconciling the victim with the offender. It is, to some extent, a constructive approach to crimes. It is indeed a step forward in our criminal justice system. We, therefore, recommend to all Courts to exercise this power liberally so as to meet the ends of justice in a better way."
But important point to note here is that the Courts have yet to decide the criminal case. All that the company has done at this stage is to get the FIR quashed against them. At this stage even if the High Court imposes cost on them, they will move to Hon'ble Supreme Court appealing against the High Court order. Section 357 & 357 A of the CrPC comes into picture only when the case has been decided and there is some guilty finding.
At this stage courts will not grant you any monetary compensation or impose cost on the defendant/accused company or its directors.
What I don't understand is why are you not filing a Winding-up petition against the Company in the High Court ?
As per law, there is no bar/limitation to pursue civil and criminal case simultaneously arising out of same instance or incident.
Hon'ble Supreme Court has held in P. Swaroopa Rani v. M. Hari Narayana @ Hari Babu [AIR 2008 SC 1884], that :
"13. It is, however, well-settled that in a given case, civil proceedings and criminal proceedings can proceed simultaneously. Whether civil proceedings or criminal proceedings shall be stayed depends upon the fact and circumstances of each case.”
Furthermore, Hon’ble Supreme Court has held in Devendra & Ors v. State of U.P. & Another [(2009) 7 SCC 495] that,
“There cannot, however, be any doubt or dispute whatsoever that in a given case a civil suit as also a criminal proceeding would be maintainable. They can run simultaneously. Result in one proceeding would not be binding on the court determining the issue before it in another proceeding.”
