Omar challenges maintenance proceedings: HC reserves order

NEW DELHI, Nov 29:The Delhi High Court today reserved its order on former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s plea challenging the maintenance proceedings involving his estranged wife in a family court here.
Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal said she would pass an order on Abdullah’s plea which has claimed that the petition moved by his estranged wife, Payal Abdullah, and their two sons seeking maintenance from him, was not maintainable.
During the hearing, Omar’s lawyer argued before the High Court that Payal had her own business and a house in the national capital and therefore she has to first establish that she cannot maintain herself to be entitled for the relief. (Agencies)
