Delhi HC quashes FIR, asks parties to perform ‘basic cleaning work’ at 4 police stations

The Delhi High Court recently quashed a first information report (FIR) pertaining to the offence of attempt to commit culpable homicide after the parties involved arrived at a settlement and asked them to undertake “basic cleaning work” at four police stations in the city.

A single-judge bench of Justice Saurabh Banerjee in its September 15 order said, “In view of the fact that the settlement has been arrived at between the parties…in order to bring a quietus to the present disputes…this court is of the opinion that continuation of the aforesaid FIR will be an exercise in futility”.

The high court quashed the FIR registered on July 28 under sections 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code and all proceedings emanating thereof.

The high court thereafter directed the 24 parties involved in the case that “all of them would divide themselves in 4 groups of 6 persons each who would undertake basic cleaning work for 3 days i.e. on Monday, Thursday and Sunday of the week commencing from 18.09.2023 at the below-mentioned 4 police stations namely Mehrauli, Fatehpur Beri, Maidan Garhi and Neb Sarai to the satisfaction of the investigating officer concerned”.

The high court said that these 24 persons shall be at liberty to decide amongst themselves about the composition of each group of six persons and also the police station where each group shall perform the “basic cleaning duty”.

The complainant respondents told the high court that they voluntarily settled all disputes with the petitioners. They also said that they do not wish to pursue criminal proceedings against the petitioners and have no objection to the quashing of the FIR.
