Delhi Court asks husband to pay wife Rs.125,000 maintenanceJanuary 16th, 2009 - 10:01 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Friday directed a husband to pay Rs.125,000 maintenance to his wife after noting that he had earlier concealed some facts related to his income. A bench comprising Justice Mukul Mudgal and Justice Manmohan Sarin, disposing of Radhika Narang’s plea against husband Karun Raj Narang, increased the maintenance amount from Rs.40,000 to Rs.125,000, amending the order of the lower court.
The court also asked Narang to provide a new Honda City car with petrol and a driver at his own cost for the day-to-day requirements of Radhika and their three children.
The court also asked Narang to provide her a two bedroom house with a drawing and dining rooms with an extra room in any of the colony in South Delhi, specifying that it should not be more than seven km away from the school of their children.
The court accepted Radhika’s submission that before the matrimonial dispute she used to be Director of Eastern Medikit Ltd and was provided with all the facilities, including a chauffeur driven car.
But, soon after she approached the family court due to marital discord, she was removed from her post by her husband, she alleged.
