Learned counsel for respondent No. 2 while affirming the
factum of settlement between the parties states that his client has no
objection in case this petition is allowed, subject to strict adherence by the
petitioners’ son to the terms and conditions of the settlement dated
Learned counsel for the State, on instructions from ASI Jatinder
Pal Singh, verifies that the petitioners have joined investigation.
There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the
petitioners are likely to abscond or that they are likely to dissuade the
witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.
Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above but
without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just
and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, order dated 31.07.2017
is made absolute.
However, liberty is afforded to respondent No.2 to move an
appropriate application in this matter, in case the terms and conditions of
settlement between the parties are not adhered to by the petitioners’ son.
