It is clarified that the petitioner shall not be subjected to any embarrassment or harassment in the intervening period, the court directed.The court, however, declined another request made in the petition for quashing of FIR.
The petitioner cannot be absolved from her accountability at the pre-trial stage.
The petitioner will have sufficient opportunity to rebut the allegations.
“From perusal of the FIR, prima facie cognizable offence is made out at this stage against the petitioner, therefore, we do not find any cogent reason to quash the first information report.
The prayer for quashing the first information report is refused,” said the court.During the course of hearing, the counsel for the petitioner submitted that the FIR had been lodged by the complainant containing absolutely false and concocted allegations against the petitioner with the ulterior intention of exerting pressure upon her.He further submitted that the entire prosecution case was based on fabricated facts.
