Having considered the facts and circumstances of the case,

since the petitioner and complainant have arrived at compromise

the Hon’ble Apex court in the case of B.S. Joshi Vs. State of

Haryana, reported in 2003 (4) SCC p.675 in which it has been

held that the proceedings under Section 498A IPC can be quashed

because it is the matrimonial matter, the criminal proceedings for

offence under Section 498-A are liable to be quashed.

Accordingly, the present misc. petition is allowed and the

impugned FIR No.138/2018, PS Women (West), District Jodhpur

as well as all consequential proceedings pending against the

between the parties.
