A woman who got a job in CRPF on compassionate ground after the death of her spouse but later remarried was today directed by the Rajasthan High Court to give half of her salary to her former mother-in law.

The court also ordered her to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 as immediate relief to her mother-in-law.

Bhanwar Kanwar had filed a petition in the court that her son,who was employed with the CRPF,had died in October 1995.

His wife Tej Kanwar got a job after his death in the CRPF on compassionate ground and used to live with her mother-in-law.

But later she remarried a man and left her to live with his new family.

In her petition,Bhanwar pleaded that since she has no source of income and her daughter-in-law has left her,half of her salary should be paid to her for the rest of her life.

Hearing the arguments,justice Govind Mathur ordered Tej Kanwar to pay half of her salary to Bhanwar Kanwar on the 10th of every month and also ordered her to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 to Bhnawar Kanwar as an immediate relief.
