Understanding dated 11.06.2018. As per the settlement parties have
started residing together amicably as husband and wife.
3. Respondent no. 2 is present in court in person and identified by
the IO. She submits that she has settled the dispute with the petitioner
and is agreeable to the settlement and does not wish to press the
criminal charges against the petitioner any further.
4. In view of the fact that the disputes between the petitioner and
respondent no. 2 emanate out of a matrimonial discord and have been
settled and parties have stated residing together as husband and wife
and have restored family ties, 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 there from.

2018 under Sections 498A/323/506 of the IPC at Police Station
