2. It is pointed out by the learned Advocate for the petitioner that
this Court as per Annexure-F order dated 24.10.2018 in
Crl.M.C.No.7058/2018 has already ordered to examine the possibility of

pursuant to the impugned Annexure-G order dated 17.08.2019 on CMP
No.2174/2019 in MC No.59/2016 will stand deferred.
(2) The learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kasaragod will take
immediate steps to refer both the parties to the nearest mediation centre.
The mediator will ensure that a comprehensive mediation process will be
endeavored not only in relation to the matters in the present MC

Crl.MC.No.6691 OF 2019(F) 4
between the parties including the matter in C.C.No.54/2017 on the file of
the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kasaragod, which is for the offence

(3) The mediator will endeavour to complete the mediation process

mediation process before the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court and a copy
of the same should also be made available to the Registry of this Court. If
the mediation process in relation to M.C. No.59/2016 is successful, then the
learned Chief Judicial Magistrate may dispose of the matter on the basis
of the terms and conditions of the mediation settlement that may be
arrived at between the parties. If the mediation process is not successful,

separate proceedings to make any challenge as against Annexure-G order
herein, if they have any grievance in that regard. On receipt of the
