Present petition has been filed under Section 482 Cr.P.C.

seeking quashing of case FIR No.106/2016, registered at Police

Station Mahila Thana, Jaipur (West) for offences under Sections

498-A, 406 IPC. In the present case quashing of FIR has been

sought on the basis of compromise arrived between the parties.

Smt. Shweta Sharma, complainant-respondent No.2, is

present in court. She has been identified by her counsel Shri

Puneet Saini.

Smt. Shweta Sharma, complainant, has stated that out of

wedlock a daughter aged two and a half years was born. Smt.
(2 of 2) [CRLMP-7358/2018]

Shweta Sharma carrying a child in her lap has stated that now due

to intervention of family members, matrimonial dispute has been

amicably resolved and now, she is residing happily in her

matrimonial home. Smt. Shweta Sharma has stated that she no

longer intend to pursue the present FIR.

Learned counsel for the parties have vouchsafed the factum

of compromise and have drawn attention of this court to the order

dated 20.10.2018 passed by the Judicial Magistrate No.2, Jaipur

District whereby the Magistrate has attested the compromise for

offence under Section 406 IPC being compoundable offence,

however, rejected the same for offence under Section 498-A IPC

on the ground that the said offence is non-compoundable.

Learned counsel for the petitioner has relied upon B.S. Joshi

Ors. v. State of Haryana, (2003) 4 SCC 675, to contend that

in matrimonial matters, to bring families at peace, this court while

invoking inherent powers under Section 482 Cr.P.C. can quash the

FIR and subsequent criminal proceedings even for non-

compoundable offences.

Taking into account the submissions made by the learned

counsel for the parties and considering the fact that the

matrimonial dispute has been resolved by the parties by way of

compromise, present petition is allowed and the impugned FIR

alongwith all subsequent proceedings is quashed.
