have already been divorced by way of a decree of divorce by mutual

5. The respondent No.2 was to be paid a total sum of
Rs.4,30,000/-. A sum of Rs.3,00,000/- has already been paid. The

7. In view of the fact that the proceedings emanate out of a
matrimonial discord and the parties have fully and finally settled their
CRL.M.C. 3650/2018 Page 2 of 3
disputes and the respondent No.2 has stated that she does not wish to
press the complaint any further and the fact that the parties have
already been divorced by way of a decree of divorce by mutual
consent, passed on 23.03.2018, continuation of criminal proceedings
will be an exercise in futility and justice in the case demands that the
dispute between the parties is put to an end and peace is restored;
securing the ends of justice being the ultimate guiding factor. It would
be expedient to quash the subject FIR and the consequent proceedings
emanating there from.
8. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No.106/2017
under Sections 498A/406/34 IPC, Police Station: Bindapur, South and
the consequent proceedings emanating therefrom are, accordingly
9. Order Dasti under signatures of the Court Master.
