Once the Fir is registered, FIR cannot be canceled. Even when the complainants urge for the same. It can be disposed of only as per the manner prescribed under the Criminal Procedure Code.
FIR is disposed of in the following circumstances-
When the Offender cannot be traced even after making all possible efforts, there are no changes for finding him in the future.
When the Complainant has registered a false complaint.
The accused person dies before filing the charge sheet against him in the court.
When the complaint withdraws the case or requests the court to refer the case to Lok Adalat/ National Lok Adalat. So that the case can have a lead towards settlement.
In addition to the aforementioned circumstances, the government has the power to withdraw prosecution of a criminal case against him in the court. This power is conferred under Section 321 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
