Deed dated 24.07.2018. The parties have already obtained divorce by
mutual consent on 13.09.2018. The settlement amount was Rs. 3,00,000/-
Out of which Rs. 1,50,000/- has been paid to respondent no.2 at the time
of second motion and the remaining settlement amount of Rs. 1,50,000/-

aforesaid facts and submitted that she has amicably settled the dispute.
Respondent no.2 further submitted that she has no objection to the FIR
being quashed and the petition being allowed.

The Investigating Officer, who is present in Court, has identified

the parties entangled in the criminal proceedings. Accordingly, in the
interest of justice, FIR No. 305/2019, under sections 498A/406/34 of the
IPC, registered at P.S.: Janak Puri and the proceedings emanating
therefrom are quashed.

Petition is disposed of accordingly.
