College where he had been working as a sweeper and was paid Rs.8000/- per month, But he was not presenet at his workplace. However we met the principal of the college. She said that she tried to settle the difference between OP1 & his wife but things did not solve. She also mentioned that OP 1 lives with another woman.
We than visited OP’s house where OP 1 & his mother OP 2 were present. On asking, they refused to provide any kind of financial support to the petitioner on asking whether her son is married again, she refused but later OP 1 himself agreed on the fact that when his wife left, he got married to another woman.
Hence we found that the petitioner & OP 1 married each other 8 years ago, lived together for 5 years & were separated 3 years ago. Petitioner was illtreated by her husband and mother-in-law. Petitioner’s old father had no source of income. And also OP 1 was married for the second time. Petitioner was very poor & needed financial help. Accordingly OP 1 was directed to pay Rs. 3000 monthly to the petitioner. With the help of Higher Education Department the matter could be concluded in a successful way & the petitioner is receiving the amount monthly.
