Judgment on : 2nd March, 2020
This is an application praying for quashing of a proceeding in which
a charge-sheet was submitted under Sections 323, 406, 498A and 506 of
the Indian Penal Code.
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the petitioners submits as
follows. During the pendency of the impugned proceeding, a compromised
and settlement has been arrived at between the private parties as regards
all the disputes that had led to the initiation of the impugned proceeding.
A joint compromise application has also been filed by the private parties.
The husband and wife in question had earlier obtained divorced by
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the defacto-
complainant/victim submits as follows. The disputes between the private
parties have indeed been settled and compromised as would be evident
from the statements contained in paragraphs 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 of the
joint compromise application. The impugned proceeding ought to be
quashed on the ground of compromise.
Learned counsel appearing on behalf of the State submits that the
State would not come in the way if any compromise and settlement was
arrived at between the private parties.
I have heard the submissions of the learned counsels appearing on
behalf of the parties and have perused the revision petition, the joint
compromise application and the case diary.
It appears that a settlement and compromise has indeed been
arrived at between the private parties. The couple in question has also
obtained a mutual divorce.
The disputes that had led to the initiation of the impugned
proceeding appear to be substantially of a private in nature.
In view of the above and in the interest of justice, I quash the
impugned proceeding on the ground of compromise and settlement.
Accordingly, the revisional application and the connected application
are disposed of.
Urgent photostat certified copy of this order may be supplied to the
parties expeditiously, if applied for.
