The Allahabad High Court held that when there is a mutual agreement between the parties to settle a disputed matter, no order is required to be passed in it. Provided that the court is required to be satisfied. The court also stayed any coercive action by the police in the matter. This order was given by the division bench of Justice Dr. Kaushal Jayendra Thakar and Justice Gautam Chaudhary while accepting the petition of Raghav Pandey and five others.
In this case, a report was lodged against the petitioners under sections 147, 148, 149, 323, 504, 506, 386, and 342 of IPC at Sarnath police station in Varanasi on 18 May 2022. The parties settled the dispute by mutual consent. The petitioners also presented the records in this regard in the court, which was accepted by the court. But the word dismissal was recorded in the order, which the court corrected on its records and passed this order.
