IN THE HIGH COURT OF SINDH BENCH AT SUKKUR
Crl. Misc. Application No. S-563 of 2022
DATE OF HEARING
ORDER WITH SIGNATURE OF JUDGE
1. For Orders on MA No. 4802/2022 (Ex./A)
2. For hearing of main case.
Mr. Junaid Ahmed Soormo, advocate for applicant.
<![if !supportLists]>1. <![endif]>Granted.
<![if !supportLists]>2. <![endif]>The applicant by way of instant Crl. Misc. Application has impugned an order dated 12-10-2022 whereby his application for issuance of direction against the police to record his FIR against the private respondent for having issued a cheque dishonestly was dismissed by learned IInd Additional Sessions Judge/Ex-Officio Justice of Peace, Ghotki.
It is contended by learned counsel for the applicant that a cognizable offence has taken place, therefore, learned Ex-Officio Justice of Peace, ought not to have dismissed the application of applicant. By stating so, he sought for direction against the police to record FIR of the applicant for the above said incident by setting aside the impugned order.
Heard arguments, perused the record.
As per report furnished by DSP Complaint Redressal Cell, Ghotki, the cheque subject matter of the instant litigation was misplaced and applicant is a money lender. If for the sake of arguments, it is believed that the incident as alleged by applicant has actually taken place and for that his FIR is not being recorded by the police, even than he has an alternate and adequate remedy to exhaust u/s 200 Cr.P.C or to file a suit for recovery of his money without approaching this Court, seeking direction for recording of his FIR by the police. In these circumstances, learned Ex-Officio Justice of Peace, by dismissing the application of applicant by way of impugned order has committed no illegality, which could be made right by this Court by way of instant Crl. Misc. Application; consequently, it is dismissed in limini.
