1. The petitioners seek quashing of FIR No. 76 of 2009 under
Sections 498A/406/34 of the IPC registered at Police Station CWC
Nanak Pura, New Delhi. It is contended that the FIR was lodged
consequent to a matrimonial discord.
2. Learned counsels for the parties submit that the parties have
settled their disputes and the marriage between the parties has been
dissolved by decree of divorce dated 27.04.2012. It is further
submitted on behalf of the parties that parties had entered into a
CRL.M.C. 3686/2018 Page 1 of 2
settlement dated 27.04.2018.
3. Respondent no. 2 who is present in court in person and is
identified by the Investigating Officer. Respondent no. 2 submits that
she has settled the dispute with the petitioners and is agreeable to the
settlement and does not wish to press the criminal charges against the
petitioners any further.
4. In view of the fact that the disputes between the petitioners and
respondent no. 2 emanate out of a matrimonial discord and have been
settled, 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 emanating
5. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No. 76 of
2009 under Sections 498A/406/34 of the IPC registered at Police
Station CWC Nanak Pura, New Delhi and the consequent proceedings
therefrom are, accordingly quashed.
6. Order Dasti under signatures of the Court Master.
