Give half salary to ex-mom-in-law: HC
The high court, while disposing of a petition on Friday, ordered a woman to give half of her salary to her former mother-in-law. The court has also ordered her to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 as immediate relief to her mother-in-law.
Petitioner Bhanwar Kanwar had filed a petition in the court that her son, who was employed with the CRPF, had died in October 1995. His wife Tej Kanwar got her husband's job after his death on compassionate grounds.
But later on Tej remarried. In her petition, Bhanwar pleaded that since she has no source of income and her daughter-in-law had left her, half of her salary should be given to her for the rest of her life.
Hearing the arguments, Justice Govind Mathur ordered Tej Kanwar to pay half of her salary to Bhanwar Kanwar on the 10th of every month and also ordered to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 to Bhnawar Kanwar as immediate relief.
