I had a either or surviour joint bank account with my father. If I had closed it after his death and I dont want to show account statement to other legal hiers(my brothers), could they can go to court to get its statement, if yes then how. How can I stop them legally to do so as this was my fathers wish to not share any account details with them after his death. Request the experts please guide.
Bank has no right to divulge such information to the third party. However, your case is peculiar where the account has not only been closed, yet the bank has shared it's information to the third party. File a criminal breach of trust case against the bank. Claim the damages in civil suit also.
Once the depositor expires, his all legal heirs step into his shoes as claimants. You can only be a trustee and even if the Bank pays the amount to you in due course as per the mandate was given, you can not escape from civil and criminal liability towards legitimate legal heirs.
