The Delhi High Court has agreed to quash an FIR against a couple, who had employed a minor for household work, and directed them to plant 100 trees and pay One lakh 50 thousand rupees to the victim.

Justice Najmi Waziri also directed two other persons, who were agents, to offer manual labour for plantation along with a fine of 10,000 rupees each on the two agents. The court said, the trees shall be of deciduous indigenous variety with a nursery age of three-and-a-half years and a height of at least six feet.

The court noted that as an expression of contrition for causing unnecessary burden upon the administrative machinery, the couple submitted they wanted to do some social work.

An FIR was lodged at the Rajouri Garden police station in the national capital for the offences of voluntarily causing hurt, unlawful compulsory labour under the IPC and the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act.

It was alleged that the minor was brought to Delhi by the two agents, apparently with the consent of the victim's father.
