S.B. Sinha & V.S.
O R D E R CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 506 OF 2008 [Arising out of SLP(Crl.)
CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 558 OF 2008 [Arising out of SLP(Crl.) No.3661/2007] Leave
Although we cannot approve the manner in which the learned Magistrate
preponed the date from 17.2.2000 to 1.2.2000, keeping in view the subsequent
events, namely, the fact that the respondent has already deposited the amount
of fine imposed upon him by the learned Magistrate as also the fact that the
complainant-appellant has already withdrawn the amount in question, we are of
the opinion that interest of justice would be subserved if the respondent is
directed to pay a further sum of Rupees Fifty Thousand to the appellant in each
case. We direct accordingly. The payment shall be made within four weeks.
The appeals are allowed with the aforementioned direction. No costs.
