recorded. On the basis of the statements so recorded, learned Magistrate has

submitted report dated 15.03.2019 to the effect that the compromise is

genuine and has been effected between the parties voluntarily and without

any pressure or undue influence.

Though today none has put in appearance on behalf of

respondent No.2-complainant, namely, Kiratjot Kaur @ Jyoti but no

prejudice would be caused to her as she has already made her statement with

regard to compromise before learned Magistrate on 15.02.2019. The same is

reproduced as under:-

“Stated that FIR No.58, dated 01.12.2016 under Section
406, 498A, SectionIPC, PS Women Cell, Mohali was registered by me
against Dilip Singh s/o Balwant Singh, Balwant Singh s/o Lt.
Mahendra Singh, Neelmani Singh w/o Balwant Singh, Hardeep
Kaur w/o Lt. Sher Singh, Kuldeep Kaur w/o Lt. Sh. Bittu Singh
and Vikram Singh s/o Late Sh. Sher Singh all r/o of Madan
Mohan Malviya Ward, PS Naya Munda, Bodhghat, near
Chopra Mill, Jagdalpur, Distt. Bastar, Chhattisgarh, Balbir
Singh (brother in law) s/o Balwant Singh r/o Kumhar Para,
Near Ayurvedic Hospital, Jagdalpur, Distt. Bastar, Chattisgarh
and Surinder Kaur w/o Raj Rajinder Singh r/o Telibanda, Near
Marine Drive, behind Gurudwara, Raipur, Chattisgarh. I have
effected a compromise with the all accused. I do not want to
pursue with the present FIR case. I have no objection in case
the FIR registered against above named accused is quashed.
The above said compromise was effected by me with my free
will without any pressure and coercion.”

Learned State counsel has not disputed the factum of

compromise between the parties.

In view of the above, no useful purpose would be served to

continue with the proceedings before the trial Court in the instant FIR.
