Adopted child has no right to property of biological father: HC
The dispute over the property rose when Ujjwala, daughter of Trimbak sought partition to which Somnath objected.
A civil court ruled that Ujjwala had one-fourth share in the property and dismissed Somnath's claim, saying his father was given away in adoption to another family.
Aggrieved with the order, Somnath moved the high court.
He disputed the fact that his father was given away in adoption.
However, Ujjwala's lawyers pointed out that Somnath's surname in school records was mentioned as More which was that of the adopted family. They also submitted a document showing Radhakrishna's adoption.
The high court upheld the civil court ruling which said Somnath had no right to claim share in the property of his biological father.
