ORDER

This Criminal Original Petition has been filed to call for records

in C.C.No.4 of 2019 on the file of Additional Mahila Court, at

Villupuram and quash the same.

2. Based on the complaint lodged by the second respondent,

the first respondent has registered FIR in Cr.No.25 of 2018 against

the petitioners herein and after investigation filed charge sheet

under Sections 498A IPC and Section 4 of Dowry Prohibition Act.

3. The case is still in the stage of trial. By passage of time,

the parties have decided to bury their hatchet and compromise the

dispute amicably among themselves.

4. A joint affidavit of compromise dated 03.02.2020 has been

filed by the Petitioners/ and the 2nd respondent before this Court.

The petitioners and the second respondent are also present in

also produced the copies of the Aadhaar Card and the same are

made part of the record. In the compromise memo, it has been

stated that the petitioner and the second respondent have entered

into a compromise and amicably settled their issues. This Court also

enquired both the parties and satisfied that the parties have come

to an amicable settlement between themselves.

5. Under such circumstances, no useful purpose will be served

in keeping the case pending against the petitioners. Even though,

the offence involved is not compoundable in nature, in the light of

the guidelines given by the Hon’ble Supreme Court reported in

2017 9 SCC 641-(Parbathbhai Aahir @ Parbathbhai Vs. State

of Gujrath), this Court is inclined to exercise its jurisdiction under

Section 482 Cr.P.C. and quashes this Case.

6. In the result, this Criminal Original Petition stands allowed.
