Pursuant thereto, a report has been submitted by the Judicial

Magistrate Ist Class, Batala, wherein it has been reported that statements of

the parties have been recorded and they have voluntarily compromised the

matter, without any coercion or pressure.

Counsel for the State and respondent No.2 have not disputed

that the parties i.e. petitioners and respondent No.2 have arrived at a

settlement with an intent to give burial to their differences.

Perusal of allegations in the FIR reveals that the present case

squarely falls in the category of cases that can be quashed by the High

Court, in exercise of its inherent power under Section 482 Cr.P.C. Keeping

in view authoritative enunciation of law laid down by Hon’ble the Supreme

Court in ‘SectionGian Singh v. State of Punjab and another’, 2012 (4) R.C.R.

(Criminal) 543 and in the light of facts and circumstances discussed

hereinbefore, this Court is of the considered opinion that continuation of

criminal proceedings would amount to abuse of process of law and it is

expedient in the interest of justice that the same are put to an end.

For the foregoing reasons, the petition is allowed, FIR No.22

dated 23.05.2017, under Sections 498-A and Section506 of the Indian Penal Code

(Section 406 SectionIPC added later on), registered at Police Station Qadian,

District Gurdaspur, Punjab and proceedings emanating therefrom stand

quashed qua the petitioners.
