CRL.M.C. 3831/2018 Page 1 of 3
respondent No.2. Petitioner No.4 is the sister-in-law of the respondent
3. The respondent No.2 is present in person, represented by
counsel and is identified by the Investigating Officer.
4. Petitioner No.1 and respondent No.2 who appear in person
submit that they have settled their disputes and they have started
living together amicably as husband and wife since March, 2017.
Even a child has been born thereafter. Respondent No.2 further
submits that she has settled all her disputes with her husband and his
family and does not wish to prosecute the complaint either against her
husband or against her father-in-law, mother-in-law and sister-in-law
who are petitioner Nos.2, 3 and 4 respectively. She submits that in
view of the fact that she has settled with her husband, she wants to
restore the family ties and wants that the FIR be quashed.
5. In view of the fact that the disputes between the petitioner No.1
and respondent No.2 have been settled and they have started living
together, continuation of criminal proceedings will be an exercise in
futility and justice in the case demands that the dispute between the
parties is put to an end and peace is restored; securing the ends of
justice being the ultimate guiding factor. It would be expedient to
quash the subject FIR and the consequent proceedings emanating
