Smt. Usha Devi And Another v. District Magistrate And Others - WRIT - C No. 33601 of 2007  RD-AH 12955 (26 July 2007)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 33601 of 2007.
Smt. Usha Devi and others. Vs. District Magistrate, Hathras
Hon'ble Janardan Sahai, J.
Heard Sri Rudreshwari Prasad, learned counsel for the petitioners and Sri P. C. Srivastava, learned counsel for the respondent no.6.
A suit for injunction was filed by the petitioners restraining the defendant first set from attaching the property in suit belonging to the plaintiff or from auctioning it on behalf of the defendant second set. An application for temporary injunction was also filed and the petitioners prayed for exemption under Section 80 (2) Civil Procedure Code. By its impugned order dated 20.7.2007 the trial court rejected application on the ground that in the letter dated 21.7.2007, which was the basis for the plaintiff's apprehension about imminent danger it is directed that the proceeding be taken against borrowers who are respondents 7 and 8 and not against the plaintiff. A perusal of the letter dated 21.7.2007 indicates that it does not refer to anything which may indicate that any order for attachment or sale of the plaintiff's property is to be taken. The order passed by the court below therefore does not suffer from any illegality as the letter dated 21.7.2007 merely directs that the proceeding be taken for attachment of the property of the borrowers. However, in case notice under Section 80 Civil Procedure Code is given and there is any subsequent development, which may cause apprehension that the petitioner's property is being attached or sold it would be open to the petitioners to file the suit even before the notice period has expired.
With the above observations the writ petition is disposed of.
