(Quashing)  No.3226/2014  has pleased  to confirm  the order of revision  
court   allowing   maintenance   of   father   of   present   applicant   against   her  
brother   Mahesh   Bhagwandas   Bhati,   which   amount   to   Rs.2000/­   per  
month as on dtd. 19.12.2014  but applicant  has wrongly submitted  the  
fact   that   her   father   is   earning   Rs.50,000/­   per   month   in   her   present  
application before Hon’ble High Court. (Exhibit 132 of R  P). 

9 As per the record of this Cr.M.A. No.756/2010, applicant and her

final argument of applicant but neither her advocate H.K. Barot remained

this matter is fixed as on dtd. 05.01.2018. 

I assure your Kindness that in the present application,, every Judge has  
tried to protect right of parties to this application and afford reasonable  
opportunity of being heard. 

4 It appears on plain reading of the report that it is the applicant, 
who has created trouble for herself. It appears that she kept on levelling 
allegations against the Presiding Officers. It also appears that she kept 
on filing applications for transfer of the proceedings to any other Court. 
It also appears that on many occasions, her lawyer had not remained 
present. 

5 Be   that   as   it   may,   I  intend   to   give   one   last   opportunity   to   the

concerned. 

6 Mr.   Sindhi,   the   learned   counsel   appearing   for   the   applicant

disposal of the application filed by her seeking maintenance from her 
father. 

7 With a view to give one last opportunity to the applicant, I direct 
the 6th  Additional Civil Judge and J.M.F.C, Gandhinagar to take up the 
Criminal   Miscellaneous   Application   No.756   of   2010   for   hearing   and 
dispose it of in accordance with law within a period of six weeks from 
the   date   of   receipt   of   this   order.   The   applicant   shall   extend   full 
cooperation for effective disposal of the maintenance application.
