The plaintiffs also made a prayer for a new declaration that the particular Deed of Sale made by the defendant nos. 1 to 8 in the Suit in favour of the defendant no. 9 be cancelled. The petition for amendment of the prayer portion was made about 7/8 years after the addition of the petitioner nos. 9 and 10 as parties to the Suit.
