Both my parents-in-law passed away (natural death) in August 2012. My mother-in-law was in possession of around 200 sovereigns of gold jewels.
My brother-in-law who resides in a foreign country, without the knowledge or consent of his sisters, moved these jewels to a bank (the bank is in our native place in India) locker hired in his wife's name,
When we filed a complaint regarding the same with the local Police Station, the Inspector said that this is a Civil Case of property partition.
Please let me know this act of my brother-in-law not considered as theft?
Thanks in advance,
K.P. Sendil Kumar
