5 With the intervention of elders, the parties,

however, have settled their dispute amicably, and in pursuance

of an understanding arrived at between them, have approached

this Court for quashing and setting-aside the subject FIR by

consent in Petition No.A-223/2018 pending on the file of

Family Court at Thane. Copy of the Consent Terms is annexed

at Exhibit-C at page 140 in Criminal Writ Petition No.1185/19.

In pursuance of the understanding arrived at between them,

the parties have approached this Court for quashing the

proceedings of the subject FIR/Criminal Application by consent.

Respondent No.2 has filed separate affidavits in the above

proceedings dated 26th March 2019. In paragraph no.9 of the

said affidavit, the respondent no.2 has made a statement that it

would be just, proper and equitable and in the interest of

justice, proceedings of the subject FIR/criminal application may

be quashed and set aside. Respondent no.2 is personally

6 The respondent no.2 is specifically asked that

whether she has gone through the affidavit and has understood

the contents thereof. She answers in the positive and states

that she has no objection if the subject FIR and Criminal

Application is quashed and set-aside. She has further

confirmed that that she is giving no objection for quashing the

said FIR out of free will and without there being any pressure

or coercion.

7 It can, thus, be seen that the matter has been

amicably settled between the parties. Perusal of the complaint,

makes it clear that the allegations are totally personal in nature.

In these circumstances and especially in view of the law laid

down by the Apex Court in the case of B.S.Joshi versus State

of Haryana AIR 2003 SC 1386, we are of the view that

quashing of the FIR and Criminal Application would be in the

interest of respondent No.2. Besides, no purpose would be

served by keeping the criminal proceedings pending except

burdening the Criminal Courts which are already

overburdened. In that view of the matter and in the interests of

justice, the subject FIR and Criminal Application are required to

be quashed. Criminal Application and Writ Petition are,

accordingly, made absolute in terms of prayer clause (b) and

are disposed of as such.
