He was also directed to pay a sum of Rs.1000/- as compensation and Rs.1000/- as costs. It is also ordered that on payment of the above amounts he can take back the ornament.

In reply to your lawyer notice he had promised to pay the cost of the padaswaram and compensation. Although complaint was filed before the Kottayam Taluk Legal Service authority the opposite party did not appear. She has sought for refund of the amount with interest at 18% and Rs.5000/- as compensation.
