THE case of the plaintiffs before the Trial Court is that late Kushal Singh and Bhuwneshwar Singh were the owners of 33.804 hectares of land and after their death, the land was recorded in the name of their successors. However, the widow of Kushal Singh, i.e., defendant No. 2 got her name mutated over the suit land. Though the widows by their cast do not succeed in their community and they are entitled for livelihood and maintenance only. It was further pleaded that the plaintiffs did not object recording of the name of defendant No. 2 in the revenue records as they had good relationship and defendant No. 1 was never in possession of the suit property.

Alongwith this civil suit, the plaintiff also filed an application for temporary injunction averring that the suit property was recorded in the name of plaintiffs and defendant Nos. 2 to 6 and for the convenience they have partitioned the suit property between plaintiffs and defendant Nos. 3, 4 and 5 as the plaintiffs belonged to Gond community and Hindu Succession Law shall not be applicable and they are governed by the customs prevailing in their community in which widows and daughters do not succeed in the ancestral properties and agricultural land.;
