1. State of U.P.
2. Mohd. Anwar ......... Opp.parties- Complainant.
Hon'ble Barkat Ali Zaidi, J
1. This is petition under Section 482 Cr.P.C. The applicants say that Case No. 1672 of 2002 ( State Vs. Mahboob and his son Shahnawaz) under Sections 420,406,427,504 and 506 I.P.C. P.S. Amroha Nagar, District J.P. Nagar, has been registered against them on the instructions of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, J.P. Nagar.
2. The allegations from the side of the applicants are that the dispute arises out of commercial transactions between the parties and is of civil nature and that is why the charge-sheet should be quashed.
3. I have heard Sri Mukhtar Alam, Advocate for the applicants and Sri Mohd. Sueb Alam , Advocate for the complainant and learned A.G.A. for the State.
4. Reference has been made in this case of following cases i.e.
(i) ACC 1998 Vol. (1) 20.M/s Pepsi Foods Ltd Vs. Spl. Judicial Magistrate and others.
(ii) A.C.C. 2006 Vol (55) , 560 Ram Biraji Devi and a nother Vs. Umesh Kumar Singh and another.
(iii) S.T. 2000 (1) , 322 G. Sagar Suri and another Vs. State of U.P. and others.
5. The aforesaid cases are based on facts given in these cases ,while the facts of the present case are not the same . Every case has a different story and different circumstances and they all cannot be treated with an iron rod.
6. The contention from the side of the applicant is that the applicants ( accused) will come and assault the respondent complainant in the shop in an open market is inherently improbable. It is not possible to discover any prima-facie improbability in this circumstance. In any case, if the matter is not proved in the Court of law, the accused will be entitled to acquittal but the case should not be nipped in the bud, for this reason. So far as charges under Sections 406 and 420 I.P.C. are concerned, it is only police who has filed the charge -sheet in these sections and charges have not yet been framed by the Magistrate. If the Magistrate sees himself that these sections are not applicable to the case, he will not frame charges about the same. This is not the kind of the case, where it could be said that there is gross abuse of the process of law; The complainant has made certain allegations against the applicants and he should be given a chance to establish the same.
7. Quashing the proceedings at this stage would amount to a denial of justice to the complainant, inasmuch as, he will be debarred from proving his contentions in a Court of law.
8. Petition dismissed.
