already left India and is settled in abroad.

Be that as it may, this Court has noticed that second son of the

parties is suffering from Type I Diabetes Mellitus and approximately

`6,000/- per month is being spent on the treatment. Second son Murad

Nijjar is also studying in a good school. The wife is stated to be living in a

rented accommodation.

Keeping in view the aforesaid facts, the Court has fixed the

maintenance pendente lite at `30,000/- per month.

Learned counsel for the petitioner in last has submitted that the

petitioner is also paying `7,000/- as maintenance under the order of the

Court fixing the maintenance in the proceedings under Section 125 Cr.P.C.

He submits that such amount ought to have been adjusted while fixing the

maintenance pendente lite.

It is well settled that unless there is order to the contrary,

maintenance fixed in various proceedings have to be adjusted. In this case,

there is no order to the contrary.

Taking into consideration the aforesaid facts, the revision

petition is dismissed with the observations that the maintenance fixed under

Section 125 Cr.P.C. shall be adjusted while paying maintenance pendente

lite as ordered by the Court.
