3. Learned counsel for the petitioner points out that by order dated
06.07.2012, the Trial Court had taken cognizance of the offence only
against the present petitioner and discharged the other accused named in the
FIR. By order dated 20.10.2012, the Revisional Court summoned the other
co-accused. Order of the Revisional Court dated 20.10.2012, summoning
the other co-accused, was challenged by the other co-accused in Crl.M.C.
614/2013 and by order dated 29.01.2016, the said summoning order dated
20.10.2012 of the Revisional Court was set aside and the matter was
remitted back to the Trial Court for reconsideration.
4. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that it is at this stage that
the parties negotiated and arrived at a settlement. He submits that since the
Revisional Court had not reconsidered the matter after the order of remit,
the order of the Trial Court dated 06.07.2012, summoning only the
petitioner, stands and there is no other order summoning the other co-
accused named in the FIR.
5. He further submits that the statement of the parties on the Second
Motion has been recorded on 24.08.2018 and the matter is reserved for
pronouncement of the order by the Court.
6. Learned counsel for the parties further submit that the parties have
settled their disputes. The settlement was recorded before the Trial Court
on 09.01.2018. As per the settlement, the respondent No.2 was to be paid a
total sum of Rs.7,00,000/- in full and final settlement of all her claims. A
sum of Rs.4,50,000/- has already been paid. The balance sum of
Rs.2,50,000/- has been paid to the respondent No.2 today through online
CRL.M.C. 4330/2018 Page 2 of 3
transaction through RTGS.
7. The respondent No.2 is present in person, represented by counsel
and is identified by the Investigating Officer. She submits that she has
settled her disputes with the petitioner and does not wish to press charges
against the petitioner and prosecute the complaint any further.
8. In view of the fact that the proceedings emanate out of a matrimonial
discord and the parties have fully and finally settled their disputes and the
respondent No.2 has stated that she does not wish to press the complaint
any further, 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 therefrom.
9. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No.100/2009 under
Sections 498A/406/34 IPC, Police Station Crime (Women) Cell,
Nanakpura and the consequent proceedings emanating there from are
10. Order Dasti under the signatures of the Court Master.
