and learned advocate for the respondents, present application
is taken up for final disposal today. The parties are present

being C.R.No.II – 76 of 2019 registered with Umarala Police

498A, Section323, Section114 of the Indian Penal Code.

[6] Learned advocate for the applicants has taken this Court
through the factual matrix arising out of the present
application.

amicably resolved the dispute. In support of such submission
made at bar by the learned advocates appearing for the
respective parties, they have placed on record affidavit of
settlement of dispute duly signed by the respondent No.2 –
original complainant, who is present before the Court.

[8] Since now, the dispute with reference to the impugned
F.I.R. is settled and resolved by and between parties which is
confirmed by the original complainant through her learned
