ORDERRevision Petitioner is the accused in C.C No. 219 of on the file of the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Chavakkad. Revision petitioner was convicted and sentenced by the Magistrate's Court to undergo simple imprisonment for a period of one month under section 341 IPC and simple imprisonment for six months for the offence under section 324 read with 34 IPC. She was also directed to pay Rs.1000/- as compensation under section 357(3) Cr.P.C. to PW1. In appeal filed by him, the conviction was confirmed but sentence was modified by the Sessions Court, Thrissur. This revision arises from the said conviction and sentence.
2. At the time of hearing, both sides submitted that a petition as Crl.M.A.No.767 of 2007 is filed for compounding the offence. It is also submitted by both sides that the matter is settled out of court amicably between the parties. On hearing both sides and on going through the averments in the petition, I am satisfied that this is a fit case to grant permission to compound the offence. In the result, the Revision Petitioner is acquitted of offence under section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, as offence is compounded. He is set at liberty forthwith. Crl. M.A.No.767 of 2007 and Revision Petition are allowed.
