New Delhi, Aug 31: The Delhi High Court on Thursday ordered former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to provide a monthly maintenance of  Rs 1.5 lakh to his estranged wife, Payal Abdullah.

The order was delivered by Justice Subramonium Prasad, who also directed a monthly pay of  Rs 60,000 to their son's education.

The case stems from a plea filed by Payal in July 2018, wherein she contested a trial court order from April 26, 2018.

The trial court had granted interim maintenance of Rs 75,000 per month to Payal Abdullah and Rs 25,000 for their son until he reaches the age of 18.

Seeking an enhancement of the maintenance allowance, Payal approached the high court, asserting that the awarded sum was inadequately low. 

She had said that their sons Zahir and Zamir are not yet of an age to manage their own expenses and are reliant on their parents for education and daily expenditures.

Moreover, she had argued that the overall interim maintenance awarded is too less to take care of the whole family.

In a separate case, a trial court in 2016 had dismissed Omar Abdullah's request for a divorce, concluding that he had not substantiated the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage and his allegations of cruelty or desertion. (IANS)
