“The petitioner as well as the complainant, duly identified by
their counsel, are present in Court. It is expressed by the
complainant that she is amenable to part ways with the
petitioner in case a sum of `8 lakhs is handed over to her as
full and final settlement of all her claims qua the petitioner
especially keeping in view the fact that her father has now
suffered a paralytic attack. The petitioner, however, offers a
sum of `6 lakhs and states that he cannot furnish anything
beyond that sum.
List on 04.12.2017.
At this stage, it is submitted by the complainant that arrears of
maintenance have not been deposited by the petitioner.
The petitioner present in Court states that he would hand over
a sum of `1,50,000/- i.e. the arrears of maintenance, which
according to him, are due towards the complainant on the next
date of hearing.”
The petitioner on 04.12.2017 furnished a sum of `32,000/-
instead of `1,50,000/- as arrears of maintenance. It was submitted that the
petitioner had come to Court but he was not present when the matter was
taken up for hearing. This case was again adjourned to enable the petitioner
to abide by his undertaking. However, the petitioner has failed to carry out
his undertaking before this Court on 09.10.2017. He is not present in Court
and his counsel has no instructions in this regard.
In the circumstances as above it is clear that the petitioner has
tried to misuse the concession of interim bail afforded to him.
Learned counsel for the petitioner fairly states that despite best
efforts the petitioner has not come forward. She seeks to withdraw this
Dismissed as withdrawn.
