After the compromise, no benefit has been taken by respondent No.2 nor there is anything to show that terms and conditions of the compromise have been complied with by the parties. Furthermore, even if it is taken that compromise has been effected between the parties, even then the interim maintenance has been granted to the minor daughters. Nothing has been shown by the petitioner, as to how he is not liable to pay maintenance to the minor daughters.
