Court bars man from selling father’s property

The father had moved to court for getting the house vacated due to alleged harassment by his son and daughter-in-law.

A man has been barred by a Delhi court from selling any portion of his father’s property or creating any third party interest in it after the elderly man moved the court for getting the house vacated due to alleged harassment by his son and daughter-in-law.

Additional District Judge Ajay Goel,while terming the suit “unfortunate litigation between father and son,” barred the Old Delhi resident from selling,sub-letting or creating third party interest in the property occupied by him but owned by his father.

The court’s order came on a suit filed by the father for eviction of his eldest son from his property as he allegedly harassed him,damaged the property and also threatened to sell it off or sub-let it.

“This is another unfortunate litigation between father and son wherein the father has to knock at the doors of justice to get the property vacated and get the possession

from his son which reflects the present norms of our society,” said the court.

The ADJ added that if injuction is not granted,it would give rise to multiplicity of litigation.

“Even otherwise,he (father) should not be forced to fight against those persons who will be having no interest in the property but is given entry on the property just because of the adamant attitude of his son,” the court said.

The father had allowed his eldest son to occupy a part of his property around ten years ago. He,however,said he now wanted him to move out as they were harassing him and other family members.
