‘Provide hygienic burgers to two orphanages’

The Delhi High Court has ordered a man to provide hygienic and good quality burgers to two orphanages with a minimum of 100 children as a condition for quashing a rape FIR against him. These orphanages have been identified in Noida and Mayur Vihar.

The High Court has directed the police to make sure that the burgers are cooked in a safe and clean environment, following COVID 19 protocols. The court ordered the man to pay a fine of up to Rs 4.5 lakh to the respondent, which will be transferred to her during the course of the day.

The single judge bench presided by Justice Jasmeet Singh called it a case of matrimonial dispute. According to the order in the case, Justice Singh said that the offence u s 376 IPC is not permissible to be settled through meditation but considering the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case that initially parties were in relationship with each other. Justice Singh called the FIR as being filed on account of ill-advised and misunderstanding. The case has been going on since 2020 and the time of the police and judiciary has been wasted, according to the High Court.

The High Court order said that the petitioner must do some social good. It is submitted by the petitioner that he is running restaurants under the name and style of Burger Singh and Wat-a-burger in Noida and Mayur Vihar. The petitioner understands that he will provide hygienic and good quality burgers to two orphanages with at least 100 children.
