NRI forced pay Alimony

NEW DELHI: A trial court has directed a non-resident Indian to pay a monthly maintenance of Rs 15,000 to his wife living in the capital, rejecting his claim that his marriage had never been solemnized with her.

Additional sessions judge Rajneesh Kumar Gupta ordered the man from west Delhi to pay the maintenance to his wife while upholding a magisterial court’s ruling for maintenance. “There is nothing on record to show prima facie that the respondent (woman) has sufficient means to maintain herself. However, as Dev Raj is the joint owner of property situated at Paschim Vihar and owner of one property in the USA, he is a man of means,” said the court.
