The instant misc. petition has been filed seeking quashing of

the proceedings of the Cr. Case No.64/2014 pending in the Court

Section 498A, 406 and 323 of the I.P.C. on basis of a mutual


The respondent No.2 is the first informant and the petitioner

is her husband.

The learned counsel representing the respective parties i.e.

petitioner husband and the respondent No.2 wife, submit that the

litigating spouses have mutually settled their disputes and are

(2 of 2)

proceedings going on in the trial court against the petitioner

should be quashed.

They submit that an application for termination of the

proceedings through a mutual compromise was filed in the Court

below. The trial Court vide order dated 23.10.2017 has accepted

the said application for the offences under Sections 323 and 406

of the I.P.C. and has compounded the proceedings to that extent.

So far as the offence under Section 498A of I.P.C. is concerned,

proceedings of the Cr. Case No.64/2014 pending in the Court of

learned Judicial Magistrate No.1, Bhilwara for the offence under

Section 498A of the I.P.C. are hereby quashed. Stay petition is

also disposed of.
