(3.)The land in dispute (hereinafter referred to as 'the land') bearing Khasra Nos. 17/8/1, 8/2 and 8/4 admeasuring 7 Kanals 4 Marlas in the Revenue Estate of Shahzada Nangal, Gurdaspur, was owned by one Vinod Kumar. The second respondent claimed to have been in its cultivating possession in the years 1953-54, 1956-57. In 1957-58 and 1958-59 he was recorded as a sub-lessee under one Budha Singh lessee on annual rent of Rs. 100/-. In 1958 the lease in favour of Budha Singh was cancelled with information ti him by the Rehabilitation Department whereupon the second respondent's right as sub-lessee came to an end.
