The Investigating Officer, who is present in Court, has identified

The petitioners and respondent no.2 have submitted that they have
settled their disputes vide Memorandum of Understanding dated 15th
November, 2019. The parties have already obtained divorce by mutual
consent on 28.01.2020. The settlement amount was Rs. 60,00,000/-, out
of which Rs. 20,00,000/- has been paid to respondent no.2 at the time of
first motion and Rs. 20,00,000/- has further been paid to respondent no.2
at the time of second motion and two demand drafts of Rs. 10,00,000/-
(each) have been handed over to respondent no.2 today in the court.
Copy of the said demand drafts has been placed on record.
Respondent no.2 reiterates the aforesaid facts and submits that she
has amicably settled her dispute without any pressure or coercion from
any source whatsoever. Respondent no.2 has further submitted that she
has no objection if the FIR is quashed and the petition is allowed.
In view of the above settlement arrived at between the parties, this
Court is of the view that no fruitful purpose would be served in keeping
the parties entangled in the criminal proceedings. Accordingly, in the
interest of justice, FIR No. 0090/2017, under Sections 406/498A/34 of
the IPC, registered at P.S.: Shalimar Bagh and the proceedings emanating
