Counsel for the complainant states that the matter has been

amicably settled and the parties have obtained divorce. Nothing is due

towards each other.

Counsel for the State has not disputed that the parties have

arrived at a settlement.

Perusal of allegations in the FIR reveals that the present case

squarely falls in the category of cases that can be quashed by the High Court,

in exercise of its inherent power under Section 482 Cr.P.C. Keeping in view

authoritative enunciation of law laid down by Hon’ble the Supreme Court in

‘SectionGian Singh v. State of Punjab and another’, 2012 (4) R.C.R. (Criminal)

543 and in the light of facts and circumstances discussed hereinbefore, this

Court is of the considered opinion that continuation of criminal proceedings

would amount to abuse of process of law and it is expedient in the interest of

justice that the same are put to an end.

For the foregoing reasons, the petition is allowed, FIR No. 374

dated 31.7.2015 under Sections 406, Section498A IPC registered at Police Station

Sector 34, Chandigarh and proceedings emanating therefrom stand quashed

qua the petitioner(s).
