"We are not inclined to interfere with the impugned judgment and order passed by the High Court. The special leave petition is, accordingly, dismissed," the court said.

The petitioner has challenged the Allahabad High Court order dated September 30 2022.
Allahabad High Court has dismissed the petitioner's plea challenging an order dated April 26, 2022, passed by the Sessions Judge in Mau in Uttar Pradesh as well as an order dated 11.03.2022 passed by Civil Judge in Mau. The petitioner has prayed to direct to register a complaint case against the respondent.
