In this landmark judgment from Hon’ble Apex Court, it was held that a daughter (not just a son) is also liable to pay maintenance to her parents under 125 CrPC read with Sec 8 of IPC.
The lower court which is Bombay High Court has given this order here, was later on confirmed by the Apex Court.
This has a precedence from a Kerala high Court judgment available here and one subsequent judgment of High Court of AP here.
