Cases can be quashed if feuding family members compromise: HC
Madurai: The Madras High Court bench here has
ruled that in instances where members of the same family
have registered cases against each other even on serious
charges such as attempt to murder or causing hurt, the cases
can be quashed if the parties had arrived at a compromise.
Justice G M Akbar Ali ruled that in such instances, cases
can be quashed as "the court cannot stand on technicalities
when there is no public policy involved and the allegations
are personal in nature".
Justice Ali passed the order when allowing a petition filed
by Malliga and Manikandan of Melavalavur in Madurai district.
Manikandan, who is Malliga`s son, had been booked along with
his mother for allegedly assaulting his father, Janardhanan.
Janardhanan had lodged the complaint along with his father and
Manikandan`s grandfather, Karuppan.
Manikandan and Malliga had been booked under sections
including section 307 (Attempt to murder).
