which is annexed at Exhibit ‘E’ to the Petition.

5. In view of the facts of this case, we are of the

opinion that the present case would clearly be covered by the

decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Gian Singh Vs.

State of Punjab and anr. (2012) 10 SCC 303. Looking to the

fact that matter has been amicably settled between the parties

and looking to the fact that the complainant does not wish to

proceed with her case, we are of the opinion that no purpose

would be achieved by continuing with the prosecution in the

said case. In this view of the matter, FIR viz. C.R.No. 244 of

2016 of Parksite Police Station, Vikhroli, Mumbai and

proceedings relating thereto are quashed.

6. Rule is made absolute in the above terms.
