Sections 498A/406/323/324/34 of the IPC registered at Police Station
Mianwali Nagar, New Delhi, based on a settlement. It is contended
that the FIR was lodged consequent to a matrimonial discord.
2. Learned counsels for the parties submit that the parties have
settled their disputes by way of a settlement before the Family Courts
West, Tis Hazari, Delhi dated 07.08.2018 which has been executed
between the parties. As per the settlement, a total sum of Rs. 30,000/-
has been agreed to be paid to respondent no. 2. The entire amount has

already been paid. The parties have already been divorced by way of a
decree of divorce by mutual consent, passed on 07.08.2018.
3. Respondent no. 2 who is present in court in person is identified
by the Investigating Officer submits that she has settled the dispute
with the petitioners and is agreeable to the settlement and does not
wish to press the criminal charges against the petitioners any further.
4. In view of the fact that the disputes between the petitioners and
respondent no. 2 emanate out of a matrimonial discord and have been
settled, continuation of criminal proceedings will be an exercise in
futility and justice in the case demands that the dispute between the
parties is put to an end and peace is restored; securing the ends of
justice being the ultimate guiding factor. It would be expedient to
quash the subject FIR and the consequent proceedings emanating
5. In view of the above, the petition is allowed. FIR No. 683 of
2014 under Sections 498A/406/323/324/34 of the IPC registered at
Police Station Mianwali Nagar, New Delhi and the consequent
proceedings there from are, accordingly quashed.
6. Order Dasti under signatures of the Court Master.
