Sonal Bhargava | Prabhat Bandhulya

The Delhi High Court, in the case of Mamta Devi and Ors. vs State of NCT of Delhi & Ors. recently asked the parties to a case to clean the Yamuna river for 45 whole days as a condition to quash the first information report (FIR). After noting the settlement reached between two parties in a dispute stemming from a minor disagreement between the parents of two children, single-judge Justice Jasmeet Singh issued the order. The issue started from a fight between the complainant's children and the petitioners' children, which led to their parents becoming involved in an incident, which resulted in injuries. Sections 323 (intentionally causing harm), 341 (wrongful restraint), 506 (criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult a woman's modesty), and 354 (assault or criminal force against a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code were the subjects of the FIR (IPC). Following that, all sides acknowledged that they had reached an agreement and that all of their differences had been resolved. The Court was informed that they had reached an agreement of their own free will and without any pressure. Both parties express regret for their actions and guarantee this Court that they will not repeat them in the future, according to the Court. As a result, the FIR was quashed, and both parties were ordered to clean the Yamuna river for 45 days under the supervision of Ajay Gupta, a Delhi Jal Board team member (drainage).
