HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE DEEPAK MAHESHWARI
Heard learned counsel for the parties.
Learned counsel for the petitioners submits that for the
offence under Section 406 IPC compromise was submitted before
the learned trial court, which has been attested and the accused-
petitioners have been acquitted for the offence under Section 406
IPC on 04.04.2017. He submits that now the offence under
Section 498A IPC is under trial.
Learned counsel appearing for the respondent No.2 Kirti
Raghav admits the aforesaid fact.
(2 of 2)
It is also admitted by both the sides that on the basis of
mutual consent, a decree of divorce has also been passed by the
learned Family Court No.1, Jaipur.
Looking to the fact that the matrimonial dispute has been
settled between the parties amicably and the offence under
Section 406 IPC has also been compounded and order to keep the
harmonious and peaceful relations between the parties, it will not
be proper to continue the trial for the offence under Section 498A
IPC. Continuation of such proceeding is merely abuse of process of
law and will not serve any purpose.
In view of above, the misc. petition is allowed and the
proceedings pending before the Court of Additional Civil Judge-
cum- Metropolitan Magistrate No.13, Jaipur Metropolitan in
Criminal Case No.262/2015 (State vs. Rikky Angrish Ors.) for
the offence under Section 498A IPC is quashed and set-aside.
