1996 AIR 1328 1996 SCC (7) 470 JT 1996 (2) 569 1996 SCALE (2)423
O R D
appellant had laid the suit for declaration of 2/3rd share of the house in his favour,
on the premise that he was a co-owner. It is not in dispute that on a previous
occasion in a suit filed by the co-sharer, a finding was recorded that he was
not entitled for 2/3rd share but to 1/5th share. the said decree became final.
In view of the matter, it operates as res indicata as against the co- owners.
He cannot claim any share in the suit for 2/3rd share. The High Court,
therefore, was right in dismissing the suit. We do not think there is any
legality in the finding recorded by the High Court.
appeal is accordingly dismissed. No costs.
