FIR Cannot Be Cancelled On The Basis Of Compromise In Case Of Heinous Crime- Punjab And Haryana High Court 

 

The Punjab and Haryana High Court, while giving an important decision, has made it clear that in case of a heinous crime, the FIR cannot be quashed on the basis of compromise. Even if the case is between brother-in-law and brother-in-law, there is an allegation of attempt to murder in this case and six other cases are registered against the petitioner.

As such, no relief can be given to him. While filing the petition, Sonipat resident Pradeep Kumar had sought quashing of the FIR registered against the petitioner on the basis of settlement with the complainant in the High Court. The complainant had told Sonipat police that his sister was married to Pradeep Kumar.

After this, the brother-in-law of the petitioner had come in contact with anti-social elements and has been jailed for two years in a criminal case. After coming back from jail, he kept in touch with liquor contractors and the complainant started working with him. During this, he often used to beat the complainant, due to which he quit his job and returned home.

On September 6, 2022, the petitioner reached the complainant’s house in Samalkha at night and threatened to return. During this he fired several bullets and the complainant saved his life by hiding behind the wall. Based on the complaint, the police registered an FIR in the matter. The petitioner said that now he has entered into a settlement with the complainant. Both are relatives and are living peacefully at a distance.

An agreement has been reached between the two and in this case the FIR should be quashed. The Haryana Government opposed the petition and said that the petitioner is a habitual criminal. In this case the FIR should not be quashed. The High Court, after hearing all the parties, while giving its verdict, said that there are six other cases registered against the petitioner and this case is of attempt to murder, which is a heinous crime against the society.

In such a situation, after seeing these facts, the cancellation of FIR cannot be ordered. With these observations, the High Court dismissed the petition.
