of January, 2019 by the 15th of this month and continue payments

payment will entitle the wife to seek cancellation.

the wife on account of maintenance or alimony pendente lite or the

like, the payments made in terms of this order will be adjusted

against the same.

investigating officer is directed to accompany the wife to the

matrimonial home for the purpose of the stridhan articles of the wife

being recovered and kept apart.

of the arresting officer, subject to the conditions as laid down in

Section 438 (2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. In addition,
