2. Subject FIR emanates out of matrimonial discord. Petitioner
No.1 is the husband of respondent No.2. Petitioner Nos.2 and 3 are the
father-in-law and mother-in-law of the respondent No.2. Petitioner
Nos.4 and 5 are the brother-in-law of the respondent No.2. Petitioner
No.6 is the sister-in-law of the respondent No.2.
3. Learned counsel for the petitioners submits that the parties have
settled their disputes through the process of mediation held before
Karkardooma Courts on 21.04.2018. The divorce between the parties
has already taken place on 15.09.2015 as per Muslim Law.
4. Respondent No.2 was to be paid a total sum of Rs.3,90,000/- in
full and final settlement of all her claims. A sum of Rs.1,00,000/- has
already been paid. The balance sum of Rs.2,90,000/- has been paid to
the respondent No.2 in cash today outside the Court, which is
acknowledged. All the other articles including vehicle have been
returned to the respondent No.2.
5. As per the settlement, custody of the two minor children born
out of wedlock is to remain with respondent No.2. The petitioner, who
is present in Court in person, undertakes that he shall not claim any
rights contrary to the settlement terms. The undertaking is accepted.
6. The respondent No.2 is present in person and is identified by
the Investigating Officer. She confirms that she has received the
entire amount. She submits that she has settled her disputes with the
CRL.M.C. 4047/2018 Page 2 of 3
petitioners and does not wish to press charges against the petitioners
and prosecute the complaint any further.
7. 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 and the fact divorce between the
parties has already taken place on 15.09.2015 as per Muslim Law,
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.
8. In view of the above the petition is allowed, FIR No.646/2013
under Sections 406/498A/34 IPC, Police Station Shakarpur and the
consequent proceedings emanating there from are quashed.
9. Order Dasti under the signatures of the Court Master.
