…Respondents

CORAM: HON’BLE MS. JUSTICE JAISHREE THAKUR

Present: Mr. Mohd. Arshad, Advocate,
for the petitioners.

Ms. Gaganpreet Kaur, AAG, Haryana.

Ms. Kiran Bala Jain, Advocate, with
Ms. Prabha Sharma, Advocate,
for respondent No.2.

****

JAISHREE THAKUR, J. (ORAL)

This petition has been filed by the petitioners under Section

482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure seeking quashing of FIR No. 45

dated 25.03.2014 under Sections 498A/ 406 / 323 / 506 IPC registered at

Police Station Panjokhra (Annexure P-1) and all subsequent proceedings

arising therefrom on the basis of the compromise entered into between the

parties.

The marriage of respondent No.2 was solemnized with

petitioner No.1 on 22.11.2009 according to Sikh rites and ceremonies. Out

of this wedlock one son, namely Agam Singh, was born. However, due to

temperamental differences between the husband and wife, matrimonial

dispute arose and the aforesaid FIR was lodged by respondent No.2.

However, now with the intervention of respectable persons, the matrimonial

dispute has been amicably settled between the parties and they have entered

into a compromise. A divorce petition under Section 13-B of the Hindu

Marriage Act with mutual consent has been filed.

Keeping in view the fact that the parties have entered into a

compromise, they were directed to appear before the Illaqa Magistrate for

getting their statements recorded in support of the compromise. In

pursuance of the direction, a report has been received from the Judicial

Magistrate 1st Class, Ambala, stating that the compromise arrived at

between the parties is without any pressure or coercion from any one and

the same appears to be genuine one.

Ms. Gaganpreet Kaur, learned AAG, Haryana on instructions

from the Investigating Officer, and learned counsel for respondent No.2

admit to the factum of compromise and submit that in case the parties have

indeed settled their dispute, they would have no objection to the quashing of

the FIR, in view of the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

I have heard learned counsel for the rival parties and gone

through the record.

In a decision, based on compromise, none of the parties is a

loser. Rather, a compromise not only brings peace and harmony between

the parties to a dispute, but also restores tranquility in the society. After

considering the nature of offences allegedly committed and the fact that

both the parties have amicably settled their dispute, continuance of criminal

prosecution would be an exercise in futility, as the chances of ultimate

conviction are bleak.

Consequently, keeping in view the fact that the dispute has been

amicably settled and in view of the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme

Court in Narinder Singh others vs. State of Punjab another, (2014) 6

SCC 466, this petition is allowed and FIR No. 45 dated 25.03.2014 under

Sections 498A/ 406 / 323 / 506 IPC registered at Police Station Panjokhra

(Annexure P-1) and all subsequent proceedings arising out of the same are

quashed qua the petitioners.

The petition stands disposed of.

Whether speaking/reasoned Yes.
Whether reportable No.
