of the parties were recorded regarding the compromise. The trial Court has

reported that the compromise is voluntary and without any pressure or

coercion. The trial Court has also sent the statements of parties in original.

Learned counsel for the State on instructions submits that

petitioner is the only accused and respondent no.2 is the only aggrieved

person in this FIR.

No useful purpose would be served to keep the FIR pending.

In view of the statements and report of the trial Court and the

principles laid down by the Full Bench judgment of this Court in Kulwinder

Singh and others Vs. State of Punjab and another, 2007(3) RCR

(Criminal) 1052, approved by Hon’ble Apex Court in Gian Singh Vs. State

of Punjab and others (2012) 10 SCC 303, the instant petition is allowed and

the aforesaid FIR and all consequent proceedings conducted on the basis

thereof are quashed qua the petitioner.

Needless to say that parties shall remain bound by the terms of

compromise and their statements made in the Court below.
