Where dispute between the parties predominantly or overwhelmingly seems to be of a civil nature and dispute is a private one between two private parties, even though offences alleged are non-compoundable, offences can be compounded. The jurisdiction to compound the offences and quash the FIR lies within the powers of High Court of the concerned area under section 482 of IPC.

Query: I filed civil suit for permanent injunction to restrain defendants from interfering into my peaceful possession of shop question taken on rent from defendant. I moved an application under Order 39 Rule 1 and 2 CPC wherein trial court directed parties to maintain status quo regarding possession of shop. During pendency of suit, defendant installed a lock on the shutter of my shop in violation of status quo order. Can I get police help in getting my possession restored back in view of the order of status quo.
