press the complaint any further and the fact that the parties had
already divorced on 23.07.2018 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.
7. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No.208/2017
under Sections 498A/406/34 IPC, Police Station Hari Nagar and the
consequent proceedings emanating there from are quashed.
8. Order Dasti under the signatures of the Court Master.
