I want to file a writ petition in Mumbai High Court for asking back historical documents taken by a researcher in the fifties and not returned to my family . The historical documents are written in arabic and modi and are kept in a reputed university. However the researcher has expired and i dont have written proof about it but i Have a declaration that he took the documents from our family . Under which section can I file the writ petition.?

Have you pursued the matter with the University and, if so, what is their stand. Is it not in public interest that such documents are in the custody of a University than in a private residence?
