ORAL ORDER

1 At the outset, this application is not pressed so far as the applicant 
No.1 –  Parth Bakulchandra Pandya  i.e. the husband is  concerned. The 
same is disposed of accordingly. I am now left to consider the case of the 
applicants Nos.2 and 3 herein i.e. the father­in­law and mother­in­law of 
the respondent No.2 – original first informant. 

2 By   this   application   under   Section   482   of   the   Code   of   Criminal 
Procedure, 1973, the applicants seek to invoke the inherent powers of 
this Court, praying for quashing of the First Information Report being 
C.R. No.I­71 of 2015 lodged with the Jamnagar Mahila Police Station, 
Jamnagar for the offence punishable under Sections 498A, 406, 504 and 
502(2) read with Section 114 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3

R/CR.MA/16255/2015 ORDER

3 It appears from the materials on record that the respondent No.2 

herein fell in love with the applicant No.1. They decided to get married 
and ultimately got the marriage registered on 9th  October 2014 before 
the  Registrar of Marriage. On 16th  November 2014, the  marriage was 
performed in accordance with the customs and rituals. According to the 
first informant, soon after the marriage, matrimonial disputes cropped 
up,   which   led   to   filing   of   the   F.I.R.   The   husband   is   a   doctor   by 
profession. Taking clue from another litigation, which was before this 
Court, it appears that the problems in the matrimonial life cropped up 
because the husband developed intimacy for one another lady and it is 
the extramarital affair which ultimately created the problems. Although 
various allegations have been levelled, yet the root of the matrimonial 
disputes appears to be the extramarital affair of the husband. For this 
reason alone, I showed my disinclination to quash the F.I.R. so far as the 
husband is concerned. However, I see no good reason why the father­in­
law and mother­in­law should be dragged into this prosecution. 

4 In the result, this application succeeds in part and is hereby partly 
allowed. The F.I.R. so far as the applicants Nos.2 and 3 are concerned is 
hereby   quashed.   If   the   investigation   against   the   husband   is   still   in 
progress, the same shall be completed expeditiously in accordance with 
law.   Rule   is   made   absolute   to   the   aforesaid   extent.   Direct   service   is 
permitted.
