1. During pendency of the present petition, the parties entered into a compromise and a joint petition under section 13-B of the Hindu Marriage Act was filed before the Family Court. Learned counsel has brought to my notice that on the basis of that petition, divorce by way of a decree of mutual consent was granted. Before granting of divorce, the complainant has also filed an affidavit before the Family Court wherein it has been stated that she will not be pursuing the matter under sections 498-A, 506(2), 323 and 114 of IPC. A copy of the affidavit is ordered to be placed on record. In view of this affidavit and the subsequent developments taking place in the matter, the present proceeding does not survive. Present petition is disposed of having rendered infructuous. The parties will be free to revive the proceeding in case of difficulty in future.
2. Learned counsel for the petitioner has also brought to my notice another petition preferred by the husband of the complainant, being Cri.M.A.No.3912 of 2013, which is also pending in this Court, requires to be decided. Let that petition be also listed in September, 2013. However, the present petition stands disposed of.
