Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that FIR has been lodged on false / vexatious / mischievious allegations, no offences are made out, FIR be quashed.

We deem it appropriate to dismiss this petition without prejudice to the right of the petitioner to apply for anticipatory bail.
The writ petition is dismissed.
