ORDER

Petitioners are the accused in C.C.No.1739/2017 on the

file of the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Kadakkal

(Temporary) which arises from Crime No.1330/2017 of

Kadakkal Police Station. Above case is charge sheeted against

the petitioners alleging offence punishable under section 498A

R/w 34 of IPC.

2. When this matter came up for consideration, the

learned counsel for the petitioners submitted that the entire

disputes between the petitioners and the 3rd respondent are

settled out of court. A counsel also appeared for the 3rd

respondent. The counsel submitted that the matter is settled.

The Public Prosecutor also submitted that the settlement

report is genuine. In such circumstances, I think this Crl.M.C.
Crl.MC.No.2426 OF 2021(C)

3

can be allowed.

3. Having considered the gravity of the offences

alleged, nature of the injury caused and having perused the

affidavits filed by the respondent No. 3 the contents of which

are submitted to be true and voluntary, I am satisfied that the

matter has been amicably settled and that no public interest is

involved in this matter. Moreover, in view of the settlement

arrived at between the parties, there is no possibility of the

criminal proceedings ending in conviction. As such,

continuance of the proceedings will amount to an abuse of

process of court and hence, in view of the legal position set out

by the Honourable Supreme Court in Madan Mohan Abbot v.

State of Punjab [(2008) 4 SCC 582] and Gian Singh v.

State of Punjab and another [(2012) 10 SCC 303], there

is no impediment in granting the relief.

Hence, this Crl.M.C. is allowed. All further proceedings

against the petitioners in C.C.No.1739/2017 on the file of the

Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Kadakkal (Temporary)
Crl.MC.No.2426 OF 2021(C)

4

which arises from Crime No.1330/2017 of Kadakkal Police

Station are quashed.
