d.k. mahajan, j. 1. this order will dispose of three execution second appeals nos. 1131, 1132 and 1133 of 1968, arising out of execution proceedings, in which important questions of law have arisen. all these appeals will get settled by the answer that is given to these questions of law. they were initially placed before me in single bench; and by my order dated the 30th of september, 1968, i referred them to a full bench in view of the fact that the questions of law, that required determination, were of considerable importance. moreover, it was contended that the single bench decision of this court in ram singh v. gainda ram, air 1953 punj 163, and the decision of the lahore high court, which the learned single judge followed, namely. mehr khan and shah din v. ghulam rasul, ilr 2 lah 282 = (air 1922 lah 300), were expressed in too wide a language; and, in any case, did not lay down the correct rule of law. 2. before proceeding to state the facts, i may state the principal question of law afresh which requires determination:-- 'whether the purchaser of land from a pre-emptor of which the pre-emptor has become the owner in pursuance of a pre-emption decree after complying with the provisions of order 20, rule 14, civil procedure code, could execute the decree in order to obtain possession of the land purchased by him?'the other questions of law are subsidiary to this question and will be dealt with at their proper place. 3. the facts, which have given rise to these appeals, .....
