What are the consequences of compromise in a case registered under IPC 279?

Question

Mpapreja

A false hit and run case has been registered against me under IPC 279. The complainant is interested for compromise in criminal case. I would like to know the consequences of the compromise. Would a compromise mean that I have committed the crime? Would the records of Police reflect me as a criminal?

If a compromise is made, what would be its effect on the ongoing civil case against me which is on the verge of conclusion (only three or four dates remaining). I was and I am having a valid driving license and insurance policy since the date of accident reported by complainant.

 

I would specifically like to know that whether I would be having any difficulties in getting the VISA (after making compromise) in case it is required in future?

Can I apply for this kind of information under RTI act? If yes could anyone confirm the complete procedure for the same?

You will not get such information under the RTI act.

Absent a court order convicting you - you are innocent. The role of the police is only to file a plaint, conduct investigation (purported to be their opinion) and give it to court.

 

If a compromise is made, what would be its effect on the ongoing civil case against me which is on the verge of conclusion (only three or four dates remaining). I was and I am having a valid driving license and insurance policy since the date of accident reported by complainant.

 

If there is no death, then you find out if the IPC 279 is Compoundable (Can withdraw). If the matter is in the court, try mutual quash u/s sec 482 CrPC.

If there is death then I doubt.

 

I would specifically like to know that whether I would be having any difficulties in getting the VISA (after making compromise) in case it is required in future?

 

Absent a court order convicting you - you will get Visa. The DS-156 ( US Visa) only asks if you are convicted of any offense.

How will RTI help you ? Unless you think the police is withholding something or some public authority is withholding something, how will this Act help you.

      I have been falsely implicated in a case by police for removing illegal banners. They  have remanded me under Sec506(II) Attempt to murder on complaint from ruling party men. Though the FIR is available online I want copy of  other documents like complaint letter, confession letter in which they have forcibly made me sign. I also want the CCTV footage of the police station at that particular date and time. 
      I have already filed RTI in this regard and have had the information denied under Article 8 1 (h) saying the case is  under investigation. Is this correct? Will First appeal be of any help?

      Central Information Commission



      Decision No.285/IC(A)/2006
      F. No.CIC/MA/A/2006/00653
       
      Dated, the 20th September, 2006



      Name of the Appellant : Sh. Pradipta Dutta, B-141 Chittaranjan Park, New Delhi – 110 019
      Name of the Public Authority: Directorate of Income Tax (Legal & Research) (DIT), 3rd floor, Drumshaped Building, I.P.Estate, New Delhi- 110 002. DECISION
       
      Facts of the Case:
      The appellant had sought certain information in the form of queries, whichhave been duly responded by the CPIO and the appellate authority as well. Hehas however filed an appeal before the Commission against the reply of theappellate authority and prayed that the CPIO of DIT (L&R) be directed to furnishinformation with respect to his following queries:
      “Kindly inform why ITOs have been posted at DIT (L&R) even though there is no corresponding post in the same pay-scale at ITJSection, CBDT. What functions are the ITOs expected to discharge at DIT (L&R)?
      Kindly inform why ITOs at DIT (L&R) are being forced, under threat of disciplinary action, to perform the functions of an Asstt.Commissioner without being paid officiating pay.”
      Commission’s Decision:
       
      In its oft-repeated decisions, the Commission has advised the informationseekers that they ought not seek the views and comments of the CPIO on the questions asked by them. Yet, in the garb of seeking information mainly for redressal of their grievances, applications from requesters are filed. The CPIO’s in turn, have also ventured to answer them. Thus, the information seekers as providers have erred in interpreting the definition of information.
      A CPIO of any public authority is not expected to create and generate a fresh, an information because it has been sought by an appellant. The appellant is, therefore, advised to specify the required information, which may be provided, if it exists, in the form in which it is sought by him.
      The information sought relate to duties and responsibilities of ITOs deployed at different locations and the salary or compensation paid to them.Under Section 4(1) of the Act, all the public authorities are required to disclose such information as above. Had it been done by the respondent, the CPIO could have informed the applicant about the source where from he could have obtained the information. The need for filing application for information and this appeal could have thus been avoided. In pursuance of the principle of maximum disclosure, as u/s 4(1) of the Act, the CPIO is directed to disseminate the information so that in future, such applications are minimized.
      The appeal is accordingly disposed of.
