I had filed a criminal case against a corporate u/s 409,,420,500 IPC and they proceeded to the High Court for quashing of the same, during which the Advocates of the corporate made me believe that they are interested to settle the matter out of court, to which I agreed and the same was informed to the High Court. After which they have taken a few adjournents for the same reason. Now the corporate says that their advocates have never taken any adjournments for out of the court settlement. Please advise:
1. Is it alright to inform the court that there will be a settlement and then without even trying for settlement, they even deny that the adjournments were taken for settlement.
2. If they did not want to settle the matter, they could simply say no...why are they denying the adjournments for the same. Why did they mislead both, the High Court and me?
3. What can I do in this scenario? Please help.
