R.S.A. No. 4114 of 2005.
Appellant, claiming himself as owner of the property, description of which was given in his plaint, filed a suit for possession. It was his case that the property being ancestral, he was entitled to inherit the same, after the death of his father, in the year 1948. It was further stated in the plaint that respondent Har Piari was entitled to life estate only and was not competent to sell the property in dispute. Suit was dismissed. Appellant also failed in appeal. Courts below have noticed a fact that earlier also, the appellant had filed a suit regarding the property in dispute, which was dismissed on August 5, 1983, and the judgment and decree passed in that suit had become final. It has further been noticed that the property was mutated in the name of respondent No. 2 Smt. Har Piari in the year 1948. The appellant is not in possession of the same, as such his suit, having been filed in the year 1991 was barred by limitation. He has also failed to show any custom to prove that respondent No. 2 was entitled to a life estate only. In view of findings given by the appellate Court below in paras No. 16 to 20 of its judgment, no case is made out for interference, as no substantial question of law has been raised. Dismissed.
