No person has been declared as proclaimed offender. I have
brought my Aadhar Card today in the court showing my

the above said FIR be quashed (Original seen and returned).”

Apart from above, a similar statement has been made by

respondent No.2-Gurparsan Kaur whereby she has shown no objection in

case the FIR is quashed.

Learned State counsel as well as learned counsel for respondent

No.2 have not disputed the factum of compromise entered between the

parties.

In view of the above, no useful purpose would be served to

continue with the proceedings before the trial Court in the instant F.I.R.

Hon’ble Supreme Court in Gold Quest International Private

Limited Versus State of Tamil Nadu and others-2014 (4) RCR (Criminal)

206 has held that the disputes which are substantially matrimonial in nature,

or the civil property disputes with criminal facets, if the parties have entered

into settlement, and it has become clear that there are no chances of

conviction, there is no illegality in quashing the proceedings under Section

482 Cr.P.C. read with Article 226 of the Constitution.
