respondent   No.2.   The   respondent   No.2   has   got   married   with   the 
applicant No.1 herein on 22nd February 2008. In the wedlock, a baby girl 
was born named  Prachi.  Prachi,  as on date, is about 8 years of age. It 
appears that matrimonial problems cropped between the husband and 
wife. As a result, the F.I.R. came to be lodged by the respondent No.2 
alleging harassment and cruelty at the end of the applicants. 

3 On 17th November 2017, the following order was passed:

“By   this   application   under   Section   482   of   the   Code   of   Criminal  
Procedure, 1973, the applicants seek to invoke the inherent powers of this  
Court,   praying   for   quashing   of   the   proceedings   of   the   Criminal   Case  
No.1029   of  2013   pending   in  the   Court  of the  learned  JMFC,  Rajpipla,  
arising from the FIR bearing CR.II No.2 of 2013 registered at the Rajpipla  
Police  Station  for  the  offences  punishable  under  Sections  498A,  506(2)  
read with Section 114 of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3 and 4 of  
the Dowry Prohibition Act.

Mr.Jigar  Dave,  the learned  counsel  appearing  for  the  respondent  
no.2, submits that even as on date his client is ready and willing to go  
back to her matrimonial home and start residing with her husband.

Well,   if   reunion   happens,   then   there   is   nothing   like   that,   more  
particularly, when there is a six­year old daughter born in the wedlock. 

The   applicant   no.1,   i.e.   the   husband,   should   consider   this   and  
respond to the proposal of the wife.

Post this  matter  on  1st  December  2017.  The  respondent  no.2  as  
well as the applicant no.1 shall remain present before this Court, so as to  
explore the possibility of an amicable settlement.

The parents of the wife are also requested to remain present.”

4 The husband is present today with his father namely Balwantsinh. 
Whereas   the   respondent   No.2   is   present   with   her   father   namely 
Surendrasinh. Taking into consideration the interest of the eight year old 
daughter, I persuaded the respective fathers of the parties to intervene

and   explain   to   their   children   to   reconcile.   The   efforts   have   yielded 
positive result. The parties have reconciled. The respondent No.2 will be 
going along with her husband to her matrimonial home. I have made 
them understand that they have to live their life for their eight year old 
daughter. Her interest is now important. Even if any dispute arises in 
future, the husband has assured to this Court that he would discharge all 
his marital obligations. At the same time, the wife has also assured that 
she would discharge all her marital obligations. They would live a happy 
and peaceful marital life. 

5 In   view   of   the   settlement   arrived   at   between   the   parties,   no 
further adjudication is necessary in the matter. 

6 In the result, this application is allowed. The further proceedings of the 
Criminal Case No.1029 of 2013 pending in the Court of the Additional Civil 
Judge   and   Judicial   Magistrate   First   Class,   Rajpipla   arising   from   the   First 
Information Report being C.R. No.II –  2 of 2013 lodged before the Rajpipla 
Police   Station   are   hereby   quashed.   Rule   is   made   absolute.   Direct   service   is 
permitted.
