Will

Ld. Ladies and Gentlemen!

Here is a real issue related to a Will registered more than 85 years ago!

A is (was) grand father of D.
B is (was) a widow who had written a will in favor of A some 85 years ago.

A had been living at a far away place. B expired leaving her land property unattended, before 1940 and A did not come to know about her demise.

A also expired in 1943 when all his sons were in British Army fighting II World War. Two of them came after 1946 when the war came to end. One of them had been martyred in the war. They knew nothing abouth the will.

None of them knew that their father had a will on property at a far away place in his favor.

In the mean time neighbors and distant relatives of deceased widow B occupied the land of B which is now worth several Crores.

Grand son of B lays hands on a will written in Urdu in favor of his grand father A.

Now question of law is "whether the grandson eligible to lay clain on that land on the strength of that will?"

Thanks  Issac,

There are several people in possession of the land now! Revenue records will have to be examined to find out latest status!
