ORAL ORDER

1 The   respondent   No.2,   although   served   with   the   notice   of   rule 
issued by this Court, yet has chosen not to remain present before this 
Court   either   in   person   or   through   an   advocate   and   oppose   this 
application. 

2 By   this   application   under   Section   482   of   the   Code   of   Criminal 
Procedure  1973,   the   applicants  –  original   accused   seek  to   invoke  the 
inherent   powers   of   this   Court,   praying   for   quashing   of   the   First 
Information   Report   being   I­C.R.   No.44   of   2015   registered   with   the 
Mahesana ‘A’ Division Police Station, Mehsana for the offence punishable

R/CR.MA/4066/2017 ORDER

“Mr.  Barot,  the   learned   counsel  appearing   for   the  applicants  submitted  
that   the   matter   has   been   amicably   settled.   The   marriage   has   been  
dissolved.  The  settlement  deed, reduced  into writing, duly signed  by the  
parties, is on record. Probably, such is the reason why the respondent No.2  
has thought fit not to appear before this Court either in person or through  
an advocate and oppose this application. However, it would be better if the  
Investigating Officer records the statement of the respondent No.2 and find  
out whether she would like to pursue further with the prosecution or not.  
The Investigating Officer shall record the statement of the respondent No.2  
and  inquire  with her  whether  she would  like  to continue  with the  first  
information report lodged against the husband and the mother­in­law. Let  
such statement be recorded and produced before this Court by next date of  
hearing.

Post the matter on 22nd December, 2017 on top of the board.

A copy of this order be provided to Ms. Thakkar, the learned APP, for its  
onward communication.”

4 Pursuant to the order passed by this Court referred to above, the 
Investigating Officer recorded the statement of the respondent No.2. The 
statement   is   placed   on   record   for   my   perusal   by   the   learned   A.P.P. 
appearing   for   the   State.   The   bare   perusal   of   the   statement   of 
Bhumikaben dated 21st December 2017 would indicate that she does not 
want  to   proceed  further   with   the  F.I.R.  She   has  confirmed  about  the 
settlement arrived at with the applicants. The statement is ordered to be 
kept on record with this case.

5 In the result, this application is allowed. The First Information Report 
I­C.R. No.44 of 2015 registered with the Mahesana ‘A’ Division  Police 
Station,  Mehsana  is  quashed. Rule is  made  absolute. Direct service  is 
permitted.

(J.B.PARDIWALA, J.)
