Can registration of F.I.R. be denied if civil proceeding is pending?

FIR-in-civil-disputeA civil dispute should not be given the colour of a criminal offence, and at the same time, mere pendency of the civil proceeding is not a good ground and justification to not register and investigate an FIR if a criminal offence has been committed.[Para No.9]
