Additional Sessions Judge Lokesh Kumar Sharma dismissed the man's plea against a magisterial court order directing him to pay interim maintenance to his two daughters.
"After going through the order passed by metropolitan magistrate and considering financial and economic status of the parties, the amount of interim maintenance as awarded in favour of minor daughters does not appear to me to be on a higher side especially in a metropolitan city like Delhi," Mr Sharma said.
"Accordingly, the appeal as filed is dismissed being devoid of any merits," he said.
The woman, who is staying separately with the two girls, alleged that the man subjected her to cruelty. She also sought maintenance for herself, which the court declined.
