counsel and is identified by the IO. Respondent no. 2 submits that she
has settled the disputes with the petitioners and is agreeable to the
settlement and does not wish to press the criminal charges against the
petitioners any further.
6. In view of the fact that the disputes between the petitioners and
respondent no. 2 emanate out of a matrimonial discord and have been
settled, 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
