Faridkot, October 21

In the dispute over property worth Rs 25,000 crore of Faridkot's late maharaja, the Supreme Court has allowed caretaker Mehrawal Khewaji Trust to operate its bank accounts for the payment of salaries to its employees.

On June 1, 2020, the High Court had upheld a Chandigarh court's order, awarding majority share in the Rs 25,000-crore property of the maharaja to his daughters Amrit Kaur, who challenged his purported will in 1992, and Deepinder Kaur.

Property dispute

In the Faridkot property dispute, the SC ordered that details of all the expenses of Mehrawal Khewaji Trust and the credits received shall be placed on record periodically

About Mehrawal Khewaji Trust, which is the custodian of all properties of the maharaja for the past over 30 years, the High Court had observed that the trustees had conspired to create the will to take over the property. The trust challenged the decision of the High Court in the Supreme Court.

As all banks accounts of the trust were seized after the High Court verdict and there was no payment of salary to its employees, the trust had approached the Supreme Court, claiming that though there was no express order of injunction, the banks concerned had frozen the accounts, as a result of which the activities undertaken by it were getting prejudiced. — TNS
