Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (for short, the ‘Code’), the

Dowry Prohibition Act.

6. Learned advocate for the applicants has taken this Court
through the factual matrix arising out of the present applications.

7. At the outset, it is submitted that the parties have amicably
resolved the dispute. In support of such submission made at bar by
the learned advocates appearing for the respective parties, they
have placed on record affidavit of settlement of dispute duly signed
by the respondent No.2 – original complainant, who is present
before the Court.

8. Since now, the dispute with reference to the impugned F.I.R. is
settled and resolved by and between parties which is confirmed by
the original complainant through her learned advocate, the trial
would be futile and any further continuation of proceedings would
amount to abuse of process of law. Therefore, the impugned F.I.R. is
required to be quashed and set aside.

9. Resultantly, these applications are allowed. Impugned F.I.R.
being C.R.No.I-79 of 2017 registered with Rander police station,
Surat as well as all other consequential proceedings arising
therefrom, if any, against the applicants of each application are
hereby quashed and set aside. Rule is made absolute to the
