2. The first petitioner had married the second respondent on 10.7.2016. Thereafter, the parties resided in the matrimonial house. While so, it was alleged that the husband and his relatives subjected the defacto complainant to extreme matrimonial cruelty by physical and mental torture. It is further alleged that on 2.12.2017, the first petitioner herein slapped the defacto complainant and assaulted her. She laid a complaint pursuant to which crime was registered and the investigation has progressed.
3. The petitioners have now approached this court contending that it was a purely matrimonial dispute, that the parties have no further grievance against each other Crl.M.C.No.888 of 2018 and that they have resolved all their disputes. Asserting that the defacto complainant does not propose to pursue the criminal proceedings, an affidavit has also been produced by the petitioner herein. The learned counsel for the petitioner and the learned counsel for the second respondent relied on Annexure-A3 and submitted that it was duly executed by the defacto complainant. The learned counsel for the defacto complainant affirmed that the defacto complainant has no intention to pursue the matter further. The learned Public Prosecutor also endorsed the settlement and submitted that the parties have no further grievance.
4. After having heard both sides and after perusing the affidavits, I am satisfied that the dispute is a purely personal one arising from the matrimonial dispute. Having considered this, I am inclined to invoke the jurisdiction under section 482 Cr.P.C and to give premature termination of the entire proceedings, to meet the ends of justice.
Crl.M.C.No.888 of 2018 Accordingly, Crl.M.C is allowed and all further proceedings in crime No.2032/2017 of Panangad Police Station as against the petitioners herein will stand quashed.
