Thanks Sir for your valuable feedback. There are couple of judgments in which counterclaim is accepted by the court against co-defendants in partition suit where third party (Purchaser) was also involved even after this order. This is really confusing. Can you provide any latest citation of SC which says it can not be filed again co-defendants in any case.
The decision of Madras High Court is after the order of Supreme Court I have shared. That is the confusion now which will be applicable. I am not sure the SC decision is in the knowledge of Madras High Court while taking this decision.
