3. The applicant No.1 and respondent No.2 got married in the year

Matrimonial dispute between the parties gave rise to filing of civil as well

4. Pending trial, the parties settled their dispute amicably with the

intervention of their elders and well-wishers and have, accordingly, filed

consent terms before the JMFC, 1st Court at Kalyan in Miscellaneous

Application No.97 of 2014. A copy of the said consent terms is placed on

have now approached this Court for quashing and setting-aside the

5. It can, thus, be seen that the matter has been amicably settled

between the parties. Perusal of the complaint, makes it clear that the

allegations are totally personal in nature. In these circumstances and

especially in view of the law laid down by the Apex Court in the case of

B.S.Joshi versus State of Haryana AIR 2003 SC 1386, we are of the

view that quashing of the criminal proceedings would be in the interest of

respondent No.2. Besides, no purpose would be served by keeping the

criminal proceedings pending except burdening the Criminal Courts which

are already overburdened. In that view of the matter and in the interests

of justice, the proceedings of the subject criminal case are required to be

quashed and set-aside. The application is, accordingly, made absolute in

terms of prayer clause (a) and is disposed of as such.
