A man has been asked by a Delhi court to pay Rs.60,000 per month as maintenance to his estranged wife and their two sons.

Metropolitan Magistrate Rachna T. Lakhanpal also directed the man not to dispossess the woman and their sons from his other house, where they are living, till final disposal of the case.

“I award Rs.60,000 per month to the complainant (woman) and her children towards their maintenance... It is well settled that the woman is entitled to same standard of living as that of the man even after separation,” the Judge said.
