In the present case represented by Kuldeep Singh and Varun Sharma on behalf of the petitioner and the respondents respectively, it was put forth that the petitioner and respondent are leading a happy married life. The allegations forming subject matter of FIR were leveled by respondent due to a minor misunderstanding and interference and pressure of her family members, which was taken care of in time, thereby leading to solemnization of their marriage.
Even though the Court quashed the FIR on the abovementioned ground, but it added that, had it been a case of Section 376 of IPC, not arising out of a matrimonial tie, the Court would have been unwilling to interfere and rely upon any compromise on the issue. With this observation the FIR along with entire subsequent proceedings in pursuance were quashed by the Court. Dheeraj Kumar v. State of
