Delhi HC orders woman to give maintenance, car to husband

New Delhi: A financially well-off woman has been ordered by the Delhi High Court to pay Rs 20,000 as monthly maintenance to her 55-year-old husband facing penury.

Upholding a lower court’s order to the wife to pay maintenance to her husband under section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code, Justice G S Sistani also told the woman to part with one of her four cars for the use by her husband. The high court came to the aid of the east Delhi resident, dismissing his wife’s appeal against Karkardooma district court’s order for sustenance allowance to the man.

Justice Sistani insisted on the woman, to pay a “respectable” maintenance to her husband, relying upon her income tax returns showing her annual income touched over Rs 1 crore from the lucrative hostel business. PTI
