The Allahabad High Court has held that when there is a mutual agreement between parties to settle a disputed matter, no order is required to be passed in it, provided the Court is required to be satisfied.
The Division Bench of Justice Kaushal Jayendra Thaker and Justice Gautam Chowdhary heard the petition filed by Raghav Pandey and 5 Others.
On May 21, while dictating the order, the Court had allowed the petition on the basis of compromise via between the parties, but order transcribed is of dismissal which is error apparent on the face of the record and, therefore, the mistake in uploading order committed by both private secretary and us is rectified by us herein below.
The Court quashed the FIR dated 18.05.2022 registered as Case under Sections 147, 148, 149, 323, 504, 506, 386 and 342 IPC, PS Sarnath, District Varanasi.
It is inherent powers of the High Court, in such matters, that can be invoked where the Court is satisfied that the parties have willingly decided to bury their dispute, the Court said.
The Court ordered that the police officials shall not take any further steps in this matter, accordingly, the petition is allowed.
