Virender Singh, J.
Record reveals that at the time of issuance of notice of motion, the petitioner has relied upon a compromise ( Anenxure P1) arrived at between him and the complainant. The learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jalandhar was directed to summon the parties and record their statements with regard to the compromise.
