Kanpur: A family court in UP has ordered a woman to pay her husband Rs. 2000 every month, with whom she separated years ago.

62-year-old Kishori Lal Shankar does not have a permanent source of income. The UP court-ordered Munni Devi, who recently retired from the Army, to pay monthly alimony of Rs 2,000 to her ex-husband.

Sohankar runs a tea stall in Khatauli town of Muzaffarnagar and his former wife, who worked in the Indian Army, gets Rs 12,000 as a pension.

Since the wife here was employed with the government and getting a fixed monthly pension, the law saw her in a position to continue to pay for her husband's maintenance and thereby approved his petition for a monthly allowance.

The woman and the husband have been living separately for many years. Back in 2013, considering they have been living separately for years, Sohankar sought a monthly allowance from his wife under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.

They parted ways in 2013, about 23 years after tying the knot. Their son lives with his mother in Kanpur.
