Gajodhar v. Raj Kumar & Others - SECOND APPEAL No. 892 of 2007  RD-AH 14400 (23 August 2007)
Heard Sri Krishna Kumar Srivastava, learned counsel for the appellant.
The plaintiff appellant had filed a suit for declaration that the sale deed dated 8.7.1991 be declared null and void. The said suit was filed on the allegation that the plaintiff appellant had 1/4th share in the said house and therefore the defendant No. 2 had no right to transfer the entire house without getting it partitioned. The trial court while deciding issue Nos. 1,4 and 6 together with regard to the co-ownership of the plaintiff appellant over the house in dispute and the sale deed dated 8.7.1991 being invalid has recorded a categorical finding that the plaintiff appellant has failed to prove that he is the one of the co-owners of the said house. The trial court has further returned a finding that the sale deed dated 8.7.1991 is not a fictitious and invalid document and since the plaintiff appellant had no share in the house in dispute, the sale deed is not liable to be declared as null and void on the ground alleged in the plaint. Accordingly the suit was dismissed. The findings recorded by the trial court have been confirmed by the appellate court as well.
The only ground taken by the plaintiff appellant for declaring the sale deed to be null and void is that the defendant No. 2 has no right to execute the sale deed of the house without getting it partitioned as the plaintiff appellant has 1/4th share in the same. However since the plaintiff appellant has failed to prove that he is the co-owner of the house in dispute to the extent 1/4th share, the courts below committed no error of law in dismissing the suit and in refusing to declare the sale deed as null and void. I do not find any error or illegality in the judgment and orders passed by the courts below.
No substantial question of law arises in the present appeal. It is accordingly dismissed.
