CRL.M.C. 3954/2018 Page 2 of 3
matrimonial discord and the parties have fully and finally settled their
disputes and the respondent No.2 has stated that she does not wish to
press the complaint any further, 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
8. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No.753 of
2016 under Sections 406/498A/34 IPC registered at Police Station
Tilak Nagar, New Delhi and the consequent proceedings emanating
