aforesaid facts and submitted that she has amicably settled their dispute.

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. 0302/2018, under sections 498A/406/34 of the
IPC, registered at P.S.: Begumpur and the proceedings emanating
