HYDERABAD: The high court has stayed an order passed by the additional family court-cum-XXIII additional chief judge, Hyderabad setting aside the maintenance granted to D Susheela, daughter-in-law of noted film director and politician Dasari Narayana Rao.

Susheela moved the HC seeking revision of lower court’s order which was in favour of her husband DTH Prabhu.

The husband had filed an application before additional family court to recall an order for his arrest passed on a petition filed by his wife for realisation of arrears of a.Susheela told the HC that the lower court had passed an order granting maintenance of Rs 2,500 a month and the HC enhanced it to Rs 10,000 on her appeal. When her husband failed to pay the arrears, the lower court ordered his arrest. Then her husband filed an application for recall of the order of arrest. Justice NRL Nageswara Rao of the High Court found that the application of the petitioner’s husband was never for quashing of the order of maintenance.

He observed that the additional family court had, without applying the basic principles of law and ignoring the final order passed by the HC, taken the adventure of setting aside the order of the lower Court which was nothing but judicial indiscipline. In fact, the order by itself was against the prayer in the petition, he remarked.

While staying the sessions judge’s order, justice Nageswara Rao said that the court below can proceed with the proceedings on the criminal miscellaneous petition and dispose of the matter.
