A court in the Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh ordered a 58-year-old woman to pay monthly alimony to her estranged husband who owns a tea room.
A UP court found that 62-year-old Kishori Lal Sohankar has no permanent source of income and ordered Munni Devi, who recently retired from the army, to give her ex-husband a monthly alimony of 2,000 rupees.
Kishori Lal Sohankar runs a tea room in the town of Muzaffarnagar, Khatauli, and her former wife, who worked in the Indian army, is receiving Rs 12,000 as a pension.
According to a report in the Times of India, Kishori Lal Sohankar first filed a lawsuit in the family court looking for ways to get his wife home.
“But she refused to stay with him. At that moment, he turned to the court to ask for monthly maintenance payments from her,” Sohankar’s attorney BK Tayal was quoted in the report.
Since the cases in which women pay child support to their estranged husbands are rare in the country, it took them a while to convince the court to order Munni Devi to pay Sohankar monthly child support.
