[6] Since now, the dispute with reference to the impugned

F.I.R. is settled and resolved by and between parties which is
confirmed by the original complainant through his learned
advocate, the trial would be futile and any further
continuation of proceedings would amount to abuse of process
of law. Therefore, the impugned F.I.R. is required to be
quashed and set aside.

[7] Resultantly, this application is allowed. Impugned F.I.R.
being C.R.No.I-42 of 2018 registered with Mangrol Police
Station, Junagadh and all other consequential proceedings
arising out of the impugned FIR against the present
applicants is hereby quashed and set aside. Rule is made
