Jaipur: The Rajasthan High court reserved the order on a criminal revision petition by Geeta Singh Deo, estranged wife of state chief secretary Om Prakash Meena on Thursday. The single bench of Justice Prashant Agarwal reserved the order on completion of hearing.
Geeta has approached the high court after her petition seeking financial support from her husband for the study of their daughter was lost in the lower court. Geeta had sought 700 pounds per month from Meena for the education of her daughter Geetanjali. Geetanjali is now pursuing post-graduation at Cardiff in the United Kingdom.
Geeta alleged that her husband is not supporting the study of their daughter and she was made to bear all her education expenses which are beyond her financial capability. But O P Meena argued that his daughter had gone to the United Kingdom without his permission and consent. She had already completed one post graduate course and again doing another course and seems to have no plan to return.
He said he is ready to contribute to the expenses of marriage of his daughter but no obligation to support a study for such a long period in a foreign country which is being conducted without his permission.
