Though mediation between the parties . failed, the petitioner and

respondent No.2 have ultimately resolved their dispute amicably. They have

decided to part ways. The terms and conditions of settlement have been reduced

into writing. The settlement dated 10.07.2017, filed in Court today, is taken on

record subject to just exceptions.

Learned counsel for respondent No.2 submits that in view of the

settlement arrived at between the parties, he has no objection to the grant of

anticipatory bail to the petitioner subject to the strict adherence to the terms and

conditions of the settlement by the petitioner.

Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Talwinder

Singh, submits that the petitioner has joined investigation.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances as above, specifically

the settlement arrived at between the parties but without commenting upon or

expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, this petition is allowed.

Consequently, order dated 02.12.2016 is made absolute.

Liberty is however afforded to respondent No.2 to move an

appropriate application, in case the petitioner does not adhere to the terms and

conditions of the settlement.
