Court : Allahabad

Reported in : (1902)ILR24All185

John Stanley, C.J. and Burkitt, J.1. This is an appeal and a cross appeal from a decree of the Subordinate Judge of Shahjahanpur. The suit was brought by the appellant Bank for possession of certain zamindari property situate in several villages on the ground that the defendants had acquired no right to it under a purchase made by them on the 21st of November, 1896, and in the alternative for redemption of the property on payment of the sum of Rs. 4,500, which sum represents the purchase-money paid by the respondents on the occasion of their purchase, or a sum of Rs. 7,450, which was the amount of the defendants' mortgage at the date of the institution of their suit. The facts are shortly these. One Suraj Mal borrowed Rs, 12,000 from the appellant Bank, and by way of security for the payment of this sum and interest, executed a deed of mortgage on the 16th of July, 1892.

Sheo Prasad Singh Vs. Jaleha Kunwar and anr.

Court : Allahabad

Reported in : (1902)ILR24All189

John Stanley, C.J. and Burkitt, J.1. The question in this appeal arises under the Land Acquisition Act. Certain property was taken over by Government, the present owners of which are two Hindu widows whose husbands owned the property. A party, representing himself to be the reversionary heir, has objected to the payment of the compensation money to the widows on the ground that they were not parties competent to alienate the land, within the provisions of Section 31 of the Land Acquisition Act. It is clear that this section contemplates a present power to alienate, and it is also well settled that Hindu widows cannot, of their own free will, alienate property except for special legal necessities. This was so decided in the case of Sheoratan Rai v. Mohri Weekly Notes 1899 p. 96. We consider that the decision in that case was perfectly correct and governs the present case, and we most therefore allow the appeal, and pass an order under the provisions of Section 32 of the Land Acquisition...

The only question which we have to consider in this appeal is, whether a waqf of movable property is valid under the Muhammadan law. The appropriator Fakhr-ud-din included in the deed of waqf executed by him a sum of Rs. 11,000, which he had deposited with a firm in Cawnpore. The deed contains the following provisions in regard to the disposal of the said sum: 'Rs. 5,000, out of the endowed sum of Rs. 11,000, will be spent in constructing a mosque with shops at a proper place. The income of the shops will, according to the opinion of the mutawalli (Superintendent), be applied towards the expenses of the said mosque, i,e., on account of Imam (one who leads at prayer) and Muazzin (one who calls for prayer), &c.;, and the mutawalli will construct a pacca well where it is required.

Hanuman Prasad and anr. Vs. Bhagwati Prasad and anr.

Court : Allahabad

Reported in : (1902)ILR24All236

Knox and Blair, JJ.1. This is an application for leave to appeal to His Imperial Majesty in Council. The subject-matter of the suit in the Court of first instance was under ten thousand rupees in value, but in an affidavit, which is attached to the application, it is stated that the title to an eight-anna share in mauza Kot Kamarhya of Pandit Hira Nand Chaube and of Pandit Chattardhari Chaube depends on the decision of the same question, and that the title of other purchasers to the rest of the villages mentioned in the schedule annexed to the petition depends on the same question. In this way it is sought to make out that, though the value of the matter directly in dispute is below ten thousand rupees, yet the decree of this Court involves indirectly questions to or respecting the entire property mentioned in the schedule, which is valued at about 1,50,000 rupees. None of the properties which are said to be affected by the decree of this Court, and which are not in dispute before us, ...
