based on which First Information Report has been registered

wherein the allegations were made against A1 and also made

against the present petitioners. He also submitted that the only

nearest offence that is disclosed in the final report is one under

Section 506(2), but it terms out of the definition of the offence. He

submitted that under Section 506(2), the threat must be direct and

here is a case where the statement attributed to the first petitioner

is that she would tell somebody to kill the defacto complainant.

4.Heard the learned counsel for the petitioner and the

learned Government Advocate for the respondent.

5.This Court perused the entire materials and satisfied with

the submissions of the learned counsel for the petitioner. The

defacto complainant recorded under Section 161(3) Cr.P.C, there is

no other material to indicate that the petitioners are involved in the

crime. Even the statement of P.W.1 to the extend it has disclosed

would not be considered as falling within the definition.

6.Taking an over all view of the matter this Court found that

there is no merit in the proceedings in C.C.No.262 of 2015 on the
