This revision is in challenge of judgment of learned

Additional Sessions Judge (Adhoc-II), in Crl. Appeal No.433 of 2005

confirming conviction but modifying sentence of petitioner for

offence punishable under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments

Act (for short, “the Act”).

2. Petitioner and respondent No.2 filed Crl.M.A No.7833 of

2009 reporting settlement and seeking permission to compound the

offence.

3. It is seen from application No.7833 of 2009 that parties

have settled the dispute out of court. There is no reason to think that

the composition is not voluntary. Offence under Section 138 of the Act

is made compoundable under Section 147 of the Act. Hence

permission is granted and Crl.M.A. No.7833 of 2009 is allowed. The

composition entered between petitioner and respondent No.2 is

accepted and that shall have the effect of acquittal of the petitioner

under Section 320(8) of Code of Criminal Procedure.

Criminal Revision Petition is disposed of as above.

THOMAS P.JOSEPH, JUDGE.
