(2.) This Court has heard Sri Sita Ram Chaparla, learned counsel for the petitioner, Government Pleader for Stamps and Registration, Assignment for the official respondents and Sri E.V.V.S.Ravi Kumar, for the unofficial respondents. Learned counsel for the petitioner argues in line with what is stated in the writ affidavit. The petitioner before this Court entered into an agreement of sale with regard to land measuring Ac.2.00 cents in Sy.Nos.89 and 90 of Yerragondapalem Village with one V.V.Subbaiah. A suit O.S.No.22 of 2008 on the file of the 7th Additional District Judge, Ongole, for specific performance was filed for enforcement of the agreement of sale dtd. 23/10/2006. In the suit, I.A.No.449 of 2008 was filed by him and the Court granted a temporary injunction restraining the defendant in the suit from alienating the suit schedule property. The injunction was extended till further orders. Even though the trial commenced in the suit, as the defendant did not crossexamine the witnesses, an ex parte decree was passed in favour of the petitioner on 23/9/2010. On that day the trial Court "closed" the interim application. Thereafter, an application was filed to set aside the ex parte decree and also an application to bring on record the legal representatives of the deceased defendant. The ex parte decree was set aside and the legal representatives were also brought on record. It transpires that the ex parte decree was set aside on 4/3/2021 but nothing was expressly mentioned about the injunction. Later, three sale deeds were executed by the Legal Representatives in July, 2021 in favour of the unofficial respondents in the Writ.
(3.) The contention of the learned counsel for the petitioner is that the injunction is restored and is binding on the legal heirs of the deceased original defendant and the sales by the legal representatives (respondent Nos.5 to 9) in favour of third parties/respondent Nos.10 and 11 are illegal and contrary to the order of the Court. Learned counsel also argues that once a Court of competent jurisdiction grants an interim order and the registration authorities are made aware of the same, they have to stop all further registrations. The counsel for the petitioner argues that the interim order which is granted in favour of the petitioner (plaintiff in the suit) is closed and that therefore, the alienations made are not correct and that the subsequent actions of the unofficial respondents in trying to alienate the property are contrary to law. The writ petition is therefore filed seeking a direction to the official respondents to take note of the interim order passed in the suit and to stop all further registrations proposed by the respondents 10/11.;
