The complainant has been interacted by this Court and she has fairly submitted

that she has no objection in case the present FIR is quashed qua the petitioner

as the matter has been compromised and a decree of divorce has been passed.

Having heard learned counsel for the parties and noticing the fact

that the matter has been settled between the parties before the Mediation and

Conciliation Centre of this Court in CRM-M-14673 of 2017 titled as

Sukhchain Singh and another Versus State of Punjab and another vide

settlement/ compromise dated 25.04.2019, coupled with the fact that decree of

divorce granted by the learned Additional District Judge, Chandigarh in

proceedings under Section 13-B of Hindu Marriage Act whereby the marriage

between the parties has been dissolved, this Court finds that no useful purpose

would be served to keep the proceedings alive as the matter has been settled

between the parties.

In view of the above the present petition is allowed and F.I.R.

No.0031 dated 07.10.2016 registered under Sections 406/498A of IPC at Police

Station Women, District SAS Nagar, Mohali is quashed qua the petitioner,

however, that would be subject to payment of costs of Rs.10,000/- to be

deposited by the petitioner with the Government Medical College and Hospital,

Sector 32, Chandigarh, within one month from today. The Medical

Superintendent shall ensure that the amount so deposited by the petitioner is

utilized for the welfare of poor patients only.
