Dr Sonia Verma vs State Of Haryana 2024 INSC 227 – S 482 CrPC – Civil Dispute With Cloak Of Criminality

Code Of Criminal Procedure, 1973; Section 482 – Appeal against judgment of High Court refusing to quash criminal proceedings against accused – SC held: A closer examination of the surrounding facts and circumstances fortifies the conclusion that an attempt has been made by the Respondent to shroud a civil dispute with a cloak of criminality- when the High Court was apprised of such a matter wherein the substance of the criminal complaint served only to cast doubt on the validity of a commercial transaction (in this case, a sale deed for the transfer of property), and the appropriate civil remedy was already being pursued, the High Court ought to have quashed the criminal proceedings.
