In a twist to the ongoing dispute over inheritance of the property of Maharaja of Faridkot Sir Harinder Singh Brar, Delhi resident Gurpreet Singh has moved an application urging the district court to implead them as party to the case.

In the application, Gurpreet said Amrit Kaur, the Maharaja's daughter, had on February 14, 1996, entered into an assignment deed for a total consideration of Rs. 65 lakh, which was paid to her. The application mentioned that a general power of attorney was also registered.

Through the application, Gurpreet intimated the court that as per the assignment deed, he would get a major share of the property in case the suit challenging the will, by which the Maharwal Khewaji Trust was made the caretaker of the Maharaja's property, was decided in favour of Amrit Kaur.

Considering the application, the court issued a notice to Amrit Kaur before adjourning the hearing of the appeals   challenging the order by which the court had made the Maharaja's daughters legal heirs to his Rs. 20,000-crore property   to February 15, when she is expected to file her reply.

On July 25, 2013, chief judicial magistrate Rajnish Kumar Sharma had nullified the will authorising the Trust as the caretaker of the Maharaja's property, paving the way for the latter's daughters Amrit Kaur and Deepinder Kaur to inherit the property.

Sir Harinder Singh Brar had died in 1989.
