Gujarat High Court deciding on an important issue as to whether minor stepdaughter is entitled to claim maintenance under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (Code) from her stepmother on the demise of the natural father of the stepdaughter held that the language used in Section 125 of the Code is plain and unambiguous and the words “legitimate or illegitimate” as used in Section 125 must, therefore, be presumed to carry its plain literal meaning in the absence of any evidence that it was intended to mean something else or include a stepchild also.
