1. It is true that the second defendant was the mother and natural guardian of the plaintiff. It is also true that the second defendant sold away plaint schedule property to the defendant. The first defendant however, denies that the second defendant did not sell the property for legal necessities.
2. The first defendant submits that the plaintiff was about to join in B. Tech., by paying donation to join in Engineering College, Manipal. The second defendant needed money to pay donation for her son. In order to raise funds, the second defendant sold schedule property to the first defendant. Thus, the sale of schedule property by the second defendant was for legal necessities.
3. Further, the sale was not a distress sale at all. The schedule property was purchased by the first defendant at Rs. 1,00,000/- which is costlier than the market value of the land. The first defendant who was urgently in need of site was forced to pay heavier price. Thus, the site is not vitiated even on the ground of fraud.
4. In the above said circumstances, the first defendant begs and submits that the suit may be dismissed with costs.
