IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA I attest to the accuracy and integrity of this document
CRM No. M-22486 of 2012 (O&M)
Date of Decision: 04.03.2014
Ajit Singh and another ....Petitioner(s)
State of Punjab and another ....Respondent(s) ***
CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE M.M.S. BEDI ***
Present: Mr. Sarbjit Singh, Advocate, for the petitioners.
Mr. R.P.S. Sidhu, AAG, Punjab.
M.M.S. BEDI, J (Oral)
The petitioners seek quashing of FIR on the basis of
compromise. The FIR has been registered at the instance of respondent
No.2. The compromise seems to have been effected between two out of
eight accused with the complainant. The partial quashing of FIR on the
basis of compromise does not appear to be appropriate in the present case.
It will be open to the petitioners to seek any relief i.e. of acquittal on the
ground of benefit of doubt or on the basis of compromise in case the matter
has been compromised.
In view of the peculiar circumstances of the case, it is ordered
that in case an application is moved by the petitioners for personal
exemption during trial, the trial Court shall allow the same subject to any
conditions to be imposed. The petitioners may also avail the benefit of
compromise at any subsequent stage of the trial.
Petition stands disposed of accordingly.
