the Khar Police Station pending on the file before the
Ld. Addl. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, 9 th Court,
Bandra, Mumbai in C.C. No. 996/PW/2018.”

4 The learned Counsel appearing for first respondent has
tendered across the bar a copy of affidavit dated 30 th November, 2019.
The same is taken on record and marked ‘X’ for identification. It is
stated in the said affidavit that the first respondent has no grievance
against any of the applicants. Keeping the larger interest of the family
of the applicants, the first respondent has decided to withdraw the
complaint filed by her against the applicants. It is further stated that
the first respondent has no objection to quash and set aside the charge-
sheet arising out of C.R.No.296 of 2015, dated 03/07/2015 registered
with Khar Police Station for the offences under Sections 498A, 494,
497, 323, 504, 506(2) r/w 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

FIR bearing CR No. 296 of 2015 corresponding to C.C. No.
996/PW/2018 pending before the Addl. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate,
9th Court, Bandra, Mumbai, would be exercised in futility and wastage
of time since the first respondent is not going to support the allegations
made against the applicant.

8 The Supreme Court in the case of Giansingh v. State of
Punjab and Another1 has held that, the criminal cases having
overwhelmingly and predominatingly civil flavour stand on a different
footing for the purposes of quashing, particularly the offences arising
from commercial, financial, mercantile, civil, partnership or such like
transactions or the offence arising out of matrimony relating to dowry,
etc. or the family disputes where the wrong is basically private or
personal in nature and the parties have resolves their entire dispute. In
this category of cases, the High Court may quash the criminal
proceedings if in its view, because of the compromise between the
offender and the victim, the possibility of conviction is remote and
bleak and continuation of the criminal case would put the accused to
great oppression and prejudice and extreme injustice would be caused
to him by not quashing the criminal case despite full and complete
settlement and compromise with the victim. It is further held that, as
inherent power is of wide plenitude with no statutory limitation but it
has to be exercised in accord with the guidance engrafted in such
power viz.: (i) to secure the ends of justice, or (ii) to prevent abuse of
the process of any court.

secure ends of justice and to prevent abuse of the process of the Court,
we are inclined to allow the application in terms of prayer clause (a).
Rule made absolute on above terms. Application is allowed to above
extent and stands disposed of accordingly.

10 Parties to act upon the authenticated copy of this order.
