SC against forced eviction of divorcees

The SC gave the ruling while upholding an appeal filed by Ranjit Kaur challenging the decisions of the Punjab and Har­yana HC  which had upheld her eviction from the house of a disputed property upon a decree of divorce granted to Major Harmohinder Singh.

"The material placed on record shows that the appellant had entered into the property as the wife of respondent No. 1. Therefore, even though, after passing of the decree of the divorce she may not have a legal right to continue to remain in possession of the suit property, respondent No. 1 cannot be given liberty to forcibly evict her," the bench said.
