(2 of 3) [CRLMP-401/2018]

On 8.1.2018, the trial court had passed the following order:-

“fnukad 08-01-2018

Learned counsel for the petitioner contends that the trial

court accepted the compromise qua offence under Section 406 IPC

on the ground that the same is compoundable. However, the

compromise was rejected qua offence under Section 498A IPC as

the same is non-compoundable.

Today, Smt. Pooja, respondent-complainant wife, is present

in court. She has been identified by her counsel Shri G.P. Gupta.

Smt. Pooja has stated that now she is living happily with her

husband and she does not wish to pursue the present FIR.

Learned counsel for the parties have relied upon B.S. Joshi

Ors. v. State of Haryana, (2003) 4 SCC 675, to contend that

in matrimonial matters, to bring families at peace, this court while

invoking inherent powers under Section 482 Cr.P.C. can quash the

FIR and subsequent criminal proceedings.

Taking into account the submissions made by the learned

counsel for the parties and considering the fact that the dispute
(3 of 3) [CRLMP-401/2018]

has been resolved by the parties by way of compromise, the

petition is allowed and the impugned FIR alongwith all subsequent

proceedings, is quashed.
