In all cases of murder whether
the aggrieved party forgives the aggressor or whether it insists on equal
retaliation, the matter must be brought in front of the State. No settlement can
be made between the two parties without the State being legally informed of it.
This is the basic principle in this regard. Keeping in view this principle, a
State will always be informed of what is going on in a particular case. If in
some cases it smells foul play from both sides, it has the authority to annul
any settlement and do what is required for justice.
