month simple imprisonment.

The accused-petitioner and the complainant are present in

complainant are husband and wife. They have entered into a

compromise in the spirit of Lok Adalat and now they are living

together happily.

since the petitioner and complainant have arrived at compromise

and settled their dispute and presently they are living together

happily as husband and wife and in the view of the law laid down

Haryana, reported in 2003 (4) SCC p.675 in which it has been

held that the proceedings under Section 498A IPC can be quashed

because it is the matrimonial matter, the sentence awarded to the

petitioner for offence under Section 498A IPC is liable to be set


Accordingly, the conviction and sentence of imprisonment

awarded to the petitioner for offence under Section 498A IPC vide

judgments dated 01.09.2008 and 06.10.2007 is hereby set aside

on the basis of the aforesaid compromise.
