Manjappa Ajri And Anr. vs Marudevi Hengsu And Ors.
The case features an appeal against a lower court ruling ruling on the matter of self-acquired inheritance in a Aliyasantana family in favour of nearest relations by blood.
The court accepts the appeal citing an incorrect reading of precedent in the view of the lower courts. The verdict points out that the self acquisition of a member of a family governed by the Aliyasantha Law devolves upon his death to members of his own branch, in the larger family. Among the members of his own branch themselves, no distinction is made between persons nearer in blood to or remote in blood from the deceased.
