In the ongoing property dispute of parental house of member parliament (MP) Kirron Kher in Sector 8 here, a local court allowed an application to remove Kher’s father Lt Col (retd) Thakur Singh’s plea on account of his death last year.
In the order, rent controller Ashish Thathai observed that the “other two petitioners – Kanwal Thakar Singh and Kirron Kher are also co-owners and are competent to maintain the petition… and in these circumstances, the name of the petitioner no. 2- Lt Col Thakur Singh are deleted from the array of petitioners.”
The respondents, including Trendsetters and Ramesh Kapoor, resident of Sector 18, had submitted that the name of petitioner could not be allowed to be deleted without “bringing on record the names of his legal heirs who had inherited the share in SCO No. 18, Sector 17, UT.”
The petitioners claimed themselves to be landlord of Col Thakur’s premises. The court observed that in the rent petition under Section 13 of the said Act, “the question of ownership could not be seen and even a co-owner was competent to file the petition.”
