and 3 are the father-in-law and mother-in-law of the respondent No.2.
3. Learned counsel for the petitioners submits that the parties have

decree of divorce by mutual consent, passed on 04.04.2018.
4. The respondent No.2 is present in person and is identified by
the Investigating Officer. She submits that in view of the medical
condition of the petitioner No.1, she is not asking for any monetary
compensation. She further submits that she has settled her disputes
with the petitioners and does not wish to press charges against the
petitioners and prosecute the complaint any further.
5. In view of the fact that the proceedings emanate out of a
matrimonial discord and the parties have fully and finally settled their
disputes and the respondent No.2 has stated that she does not wish to
press the complaint any further and the fact that the parties have
already been divorced by way of a decree of divorce by mutual
consent, passed on 04.04.2018, 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
