Prayer in this petition is for grant of anticipatory bail to the

petitioner in FIR No. 19 dated 03.02.2016 under Sections 406/498A IPC

registered at Women Police Station, Chandigarh.

It is informed during the pendency of this petition, the matter

has been amicably resolved between the parties before the Mediation and

Conciliation Centre of this Court. Settlement/agreement dated 23.08.2017

was taken on record on 23.08.2017. It is informed that petition under

Section 13B of Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 has been filed. Part of the settled

amount has been handed over to respondent No. 2. The petitioner, it is

to the terms and conditions of the settlement. It is, thus, prayed that this

petition be allowed.

Learned counsel for the Union Territory, Chandigarh verifies

that the petitioner has since joined investigation. He is not involved in any

other criminal case.

There are no allegations on behalf of the State that the

petitioner is likely to abscond or that he is likely to dissuade the

witnesses from deposing true facts in the Court, if released on bail.

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances noted above but

without expressing any opinion on the merits of case, it is considered just

and expedient to allow this petition. Consequently, order dated 27.02.2016

is made absolute.

However, liberty is afforded to respondent No.2 to move an

appropriate application in this matter, in case, the terms and conditions of

settlement between the parties are not adhered to by the petitioner.
