Thereafter it has been also observed that the petitioner is not entitled to get mandatory injunction directing the respondent to leave and vacate the residence in favour of the petitioner as per schedule of the petition and to hand over the said two sons to the petitioner.
(3.)It may be noted that the appellant and the respondent were the husband and wife till the decree in Title Suit (Divorce) 70 of 2009 was passed on the ground of adultery by dissolving the marriage that subsisted between the parties. The judgment and decree was passed on 27/8/2011. An appeal being appeal No. MAT 08 of 2011 in the High Court of Tripura was preferred from the said judgment and decree. The said appeal was also dismissed affirming the judgment passed by the Family Court in Title Suit (Divorce) 70 of 2009. Thus, the said judgment and decree allowing divorce reached finality without further challenge. It appears from the petition (containing the pleadings filed under Sec. 26 of the Hindu Marriage Act, read with Sec. 3(b) of Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956 and under Sec. 39 of the Specific Relief Act, 1963) that at the time of filing the said petition i.e. on 20/5/2016 both the children who are in the custody of the respondent and the respondent were occupying a room in the house of the appellant herein. To evict the respondent therefrom and to get custody of the children that petition has been filed urging the following reliefs:
(i) a declaration of petitioner's right to get the above noted two sons Shri Senhasish Sinha and Shri Debayan Sinha in to petitioner's guardianship and custody and with him;
