(2.) Respondent No. 1 tiled Title Suit No.5 1 of 1970 in the Court of Subordinate Judge at Khulna for declaration of his title to the suit land measuring 11.64 acres. The suit was later on transferred to the Court of Subordinate Judge, Satkhira and renumbered as Title Suit No.5 14 of 1981. Amongst other defendants defendant No.15 filed a written statement stating, inter alia, that he has sold some of the suit land to the appellant and others whereupon respondent No.1 impleaded those purchase as defendant Nos. 30-36. The Suit was ultimately decreed exparte on 28-1-1985.
