Jagtar Singh and others .. petitioner
Sohan Singh and others .. Respondent
CORAM: HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE M.M. KUMAR
PRESENT: Mr. Padam Jain , Advocate for the petitioner M.M.Kumar, J.
Both the Courts below have prima facie found that defendant- respondent is owner of the property. However, the plaintiff- petitioners have filed a suit for declaration claiming themselves to be the owner in possession of the suit property. They have also prayed for injunction that they should not be dispossessed without the due process of law. Both the Courts below have found that no injunction against a true owner can be issued and in that regard reliance has been placed on a judgement of the Supreme Court in the case of Sri Hanumanthappa v. Sri Muninaraayanapra 1997(1) CCC 90 which is to the effect that no injunction can be issued against lawful owner of the property. The plaintiff- petitioners have admittedly placed reliance on an oral agreement of sale which has neither been substantiated either by payment of any earnest money or by any other document. Therefore, I do not find any ground to interfere with the order passed by both the Courts below. The discretion has been exercised on relevant considerations and it CR 1260 of 2006 .2.
cannot be concluded that any manifest injustice has been caused to the petitioner.
