Bantwal, Dec 10: The Family Court in Mangaluru has nullified the alimony of a woman who entered into a second marriage without the knowledge of her first husband, all while their divorce case was still ongoing.
In 2018, Udaya Nayak, a resident of Panakaje Mandadi, married Anita Nayak from Maryhill. However, due to differences, the couple initiated divorce proceedings. Amidst this legal process, Udaya Nayak took the initiative to file a private complaint in the CJ and JMFC court of Beltangady, alleging that Anita secretly married for a second time.
During these legal developments, Anita Nayak, still married to Udaya, filed a suit in court seeking alimony from her husband. Following a court order, Udaya complied and provided a Demand Draft of Rs 15,000.
In a remarkable turn of events, Udaya Nayak, donning the hat of a detective, uncovered evidence of his wife's second marriage. He stumbled upon a public notice in the Maharashtra Gazette, revealing Anita's marriage to Harikrishna Ganapat Rao Keelu in Dombivili, Mumbai, on March 13, 2023.
Udaya Nayak presented the Maharashtra Gazette along with photos of his wife and her second husband to the Family Court in Mangaluru. The chief judge, upon reviewing the evidence, acknowledged the documents and subsequently ordered the cancellation of the alimony being granted to Anita Nayak.
