For the sake of convenience, the parties will be referred to by their name.

2.Adish Haridas got married to Divya and they have two children namely, Ananya and Gowrinandan. The spouse got estranged, on account of which, Divya filed M.C.No.4 of 2016 before the learned Judicial Magistrate, Thirukazhukundram, undere Section 125 of Cr.P.C. Divya also filed C.M.P.No.4093 of 2016 in M.C.No.4 of 2016 for interim maintenance, in which, the learned Judicial Magistrate, Thirukazhukundram, by order dated 27.02.2017, has awarded interim maintenance of Rs.5,000/- each to two children, totally, Rs.10,000/-. Challenging the said order, Adish Haridas filed Crl.R.C.No.8 of 2017 before the Sessions Court, which has been dismissed by the learned Principal Sessions Judge on 28.02.2018. Aggrieved by which, Adish Haridas has filed the present petition under Section 482 of Cr.P.C.

3.Heard Mr.T.Velumani, learned counsel appearing for the petitioner.

4.At the outset, a second revision is not maintainable before the High Court, at the instance of a party, who has already approached the Sessions Court by invoking its revisional jurisdiction, in view of the Section 397(3) of Cr.P.C. However, a petition under Section 482 of Cr.P.C. is maintainable, where it is shown that the orders passed by the Courts below are per se illegal and beyond jurisdiction.

5.In this case, the learned Judicial Magistrate has jurisdiction to entertain the petition under Section 125 of Cr.P.C. and also award interim maintenance pendente lite. Challenging the said order, the revision petition was filed before the Sessions Court and the Sessions Court has also entertained the revision under Section 397 of Cr.P.C. Therefore, it cannot be stated that both the Courts have no jurisdiction to entertain this petition. Be that as it may, both the Courts have already decided the issue on facts which cannot be interfered with under Section 482 Cr.P.C.

Hence, this Criminal Original Petition is devoid of merits and the same is dismissed. Further, this Court directs the trial Court to complete the trial in M.C.No.4 of 2016 within


three months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order, provided Adish Haridas shall co-operate with the trial and pays the interim maintenance amount without arrears. Consequently, connected Miscellaneous Petition is closed.
