Perusal of allegations in the FIR reveals that the present case

squarely falls in the category of cases that can be quashed by the High Court, in

exercise of its inherent power under Section 482 Cr.P.C. Keeping in view

authoritative enunciation of law laid down by Hon’ble the Supreme Court in

‘Gian Singh v. State of Punjab and another’, 2012 (4) R.C.R. (Criminal)

543 and in the light of facts and circumstances discussed hereinbefore, this

would amount to abuse of process of law and it is expedient in the interest of

justice that the same are put to an end.

For the foregoing reasons, the petition is allowed. Consequently,

under Section 406 IPC) registered at Police Station Women District SAS

Nagar, Mohali and subsequent proceedings arising therefrom on the basis of
