Learned counsel for the petitioners 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, the petition is allowed and the impugned FIR

alongwith all subsequent proceedings is quashed.
