After considering the facts, the Court noted that in the present matter, the police has not only investigated the case but even filed the chargesheet and judicial times had been wasted.
“Considerable time of the police has also been wasted on issues which should not have escalated to this extent. In addition, valuable judicial time has also been wasted. Even though the parties have settled their disputes and quashing will put a quietus to the matter, the petitioners must do some social good,” the Court underscored.
It added that since the petitioners belong to a humble background, financial cost will not be imposed on them but they must plant the trees within four weeks.
