2 As nobody had appeared for respondent on 14-2-2020, this

court appointed Mr. Jamshed Master, as an Amicus Curiae. On 18-2-2020

also as nobody appeared for respondent, the court directed notice be issued

to original complainant as well as accused to remain present in court. The

learned APP Ms Malhotra says that original complainant (PW-1) Ms Swati

Shinde is present in court. The original complainant tenders photocopy of

her Adharcard, which is taken on record. Respondent also is present in

court and is identified by Mr. Vilas Mali, an Advocate appearing for him.

3 PW-1 says that PW-1 and accused obtained a decree of divorce

from Alibaug Family Court on 25-6-2013 and in the consent petition, they

have filed consent terms, in which, both agreed to withdraw the charges

against each other. The certified copy of the consent terms is tendered by

Mr. Mali, which is taken on record and marked “X” for identification. PW-1

states that since they have withdrawn the allegations against each other, the

court may dispose of the appeal. The Learned APP says that as of now the

offence charged is compoundable and the court in view of the parties having

agreed, may dispose of the appeal.
