Criminal record after false case
A false case was put on me and was forced to do the compromise and I was 17yrs that time and still the police officer told me to say in the court that my age was 20, I refused but they told me that it was only option left as FIR was filed against me under IPC 337 which was settled in lok adalat . So I wanted to ask am I having a criminal record now?
If the matter is settled in lok aladat, then yes it is now mentioned in your criminal history. Only if a person gets acquitted or discharge, then only it doesnt add to his crmiminal record.
But in case of need you can always justify it.
Sir the Lok Adalat has the power equal to civil court and its decrees hold a strong legal binding. Thus, its orders with reflect on the legal history of a recipient. Nonetheless as your case was a compromise and you were a minor, implications of the decree will be negligible and you have nothing to worry.
