Now, Faridkot Maharaja’s grandchildren move Supreme Court

Tribune News Service

Faridkot, July 12

In what seems to be an unending dispute over the property of late Maharaja Harinder Singh of the erstwhile Faridkot estate, his grandchildren have now approached the Supreme Court, challenging the High Court verdict in which a daughter of the late Maharaja was awarded one-third share in the property worth over Rs 25,000 crore.

Jai Chand Mehtab and his sister Nisha Kehr, children of late Deepinder Kaur, a daughter of the Maharaja, have challenged the High Court verdict issued about a month ago.

After the High Court verdict in her favour, Amrit Kaur had got a criminal case registered against 23 persons, including Jai Chand and Nisha, for forging her father’s will to deprive her of her share in the property.

In her complaint, Amrit Kaur had alleged that to plunder and misappropriate her father’s vast properties, Deepinder Kaur and 22 other persons had forged a will and used it to create a Trust. They imposed themselves as office-bearers and their family members and relatives were controlling the Trust for the past over 30 years, plundering the late Maharaja’s properties.

Though a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Punjab Police, constituted to investigate the allegations in the FIR, is yet to make a headway, the accused have challenged the High Court verdict. This case is listed for August 13 in the Supreme Court.
