Mithlesh Bishwakarma is present alongwith her father Deena Nath and her counsel Sri D.K. Tripathi. Sri N.C. Tripathi, Addl. Government Advocate is present for the State.
2. On a first information report lodged by Opp. Party No.2, complainant with Police Station Kotwali District Jaunpur, the police had registered a case Crime No. 1208 of 2005 under Section 498-A I.P.C. and Section 3 /4 of Dowry Prohibition Act, against all the seven accused-applicants and after investigating filed a charge-sheet in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur on the basis of which, a criminal Case No. 1699 of 2006 was registered.
3. The parties, latter on, arrived to terms in the present case in various litigations in between them in different courts, in consequence whereof, the complainant and her husband applicant no.1 Rajesh Kumar filed a written compromise before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur , which is still pending for decision. Subsequently, the applicant-accused came up here under Section 482 Cr.P.C. , in which they also filed copy of the written compromise, which was filed between the parties in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur.
4. Today, the Opp. Party No.2 appeared in this case an on enquiry made with regard to the compromise filed in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur, a copy of which is available on the record here, she admitted the factum of compromise after going through the contents of the compromise filed here. Her statement and that of applicant no.1 Rajesh Kumar was recorded by this Court and the Opp. Party No.2 has unequivocally admitted that these terms of compromise are arrived between them and now she has no complaint against Rajesh Kumar and the other accused-applicant. She has also stated that in other cases pending between her and Rajesh Kumar, she has already compromised and in terms of compromise, she has nothing to say if the present criminal proceedings against the applicants in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur are dropped.
5. I have heard learned counsel for the parties and the learned A.G.A.
6. It is true that both the offences in which the accused-applicants are being prosecuted, are non-compoundable offences but since the complainant is not now supporting the allegations made in the prosecution case against the applicants-accused, the chances of conviction are zero and in the aforementioned circumstances, it would not be proper to allow the continuation of the proceedings as it will be a sheer abuse of the process of Court, therefore, adhering to the proposition of law as propounded in case of B.S. Joshi and others Vs. State of Haryana and another , 2003 S.C.C. (Crl.) 848 , the criminal proceedings pending against the applicants in the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Jaunpur as noted above, are hereby quashed.
7. This application is disposed of accordingly.
