2. The petitioner No.1 is the husband of the respondent No.2, the
complainant. The petitioner Nos.2 and 3 are the parents of the
petitioner No.1 and the petitioner No.4 is the brother of the petitioner
3. A settlement has been arrived at between the parties, as
recorded on 24.01.2017 in matrimonial case being MT No.134/2015,
wherein, the petitioner No.1 and the respondent No.2 had agreed to
dissolve their marriage by mutual consent. It is stated that both the
first as well as the second motion have already been recorded and the
final order dissolving the marriage between the parties has been
passed on 14.09.2017. In terms of the settlement, the petitioner No.1
had agreed to pay a sum of Rs.10,00,000/- to the respondent No.2
towards all her claims. A sum of Rs.7,00,000/- has already been paid
to the petitioner. The balance sum of Rs.3,00,000/- is being paid to
the respondent No.2 by way of a Demand Draft No.224097 dated
29.12.2017 drawn on the State Bank of India, Hussainpur, Kapurthala.
The said amount is accepted by the respondent No.2, who is present in
Court and is identified by the IO.
4. The respondent No.2 submits that she has no objection to the
quashing of the FIR and the consequent proceedings and submits that
she has amicably settled all her disputes with the petitioners.
5. The disputes inter se the petitioner and respondent No. 2 are
personal and not of a serious nature. In view of the settlement arrived
CRL.M.C. 1/2018 Page 2 of 3
at between the parties and, because the disputes arise out of a
matrimonial discord and an amicable settlement has taken place and
further that the marriage between the parties has been dissolved by
way of mutual consent, I am of the view that no purpose would be
served in continuing with the proceedings and ends of justice require
that the proceedings be quashed.
6. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. The FIR
No.900/2015 under Section 498A/406/34 IPC, P.S. Hari Nagar and
the consequent proceedings arising therefrom are, accordingly,
7. Order Dasti under the signatures of the Court Master.
