3. On the other hand, learned counsel appearing for

complainant-respondent admits the fact of compromise and

submits that he is willing if the FIR and the proceedings are

quashed on the basis of compromise entered in between the


4. Learned Public Prosecutor has opposed the petition.

5. Heard, perused the material available on record more

particularly the police report, nature of allegation and the

compromise deed executed in between the parties. The dispute is

related to a matrimonial strife. The parties to the lis have resolved

their dispute amicably and do not wish to continue the criminal

proceedings and have jointly prayed for quashing of the same. The

offence alleged in this matter is non-compoundable, however,

Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Gian Singh Vs. State of

Punjab [(2012)] 10 SCC 303] has propounded that if it is

convinced that offences are entirely personal in nature and do not

affect the public peace or tranquility and where it feels that

quashing of such proceedings on account of compromise would

bring about peace and would secure ends of justice, the High

Court should not hesitate to quash the same by exercising the

inherent powers vested in it. It is observed that in such cases, the

prosecution becomes a lame prosecution and pursuing such a

lame prosecution would be a waste of time and energy that will

inter se between the parties, either they are relatives, neighbors

or having business relationship and which does not affect the

society at large, then in such cases, with a view to maintain

harmonious relationships between the two sides, to end-up the

dipute in between them permanently as well as for restitution of

relationship, the High Court should exercise its inherent power to

quash the FIR and all other subsequent proceedings initiated


6. Here in this case, though the offences are not compoundable

but the parties have settled the dispute amicably and that is

essentially in between the parties which is not affecting public

peace and tranquility, therefore, with a view to maintain the

harmony and to resolve the dispute finally in vetween the parties,

it is deemed appropriate to quash the FIR and all further

proceedings undertaken in pursuance thereof.

7. Accordingly, the criminal misc. Petition is allowed and the FIR

mentioned above, and all further proceedings undertaken in

pursuance thereof are hereby quashed and set aside. The SHO

concerned is directed to file a closure report with the concerned

Judicial Magistrate within a period of one month from the date of

receiving copy of this order.

6. The stay petition also stands disposed of.
