Maharani Gayatri Devi’s grandkids are her legal heirs: Delhi High Court

Striking down an earlier judgment wherein the stepsons of Rajmata Gayatri Devi were declared entitled to a share of her property, the Delhi High Court (HC) has held the Queen’s two grandchildren as her legal heirs.Justice S Ravindra Bhat referred to an earlier judgment in a different case, where it was held that step-children could not be equated to children. The death of the maharani gave rise to a tiff over the property. Jagat Singh, the son of the late queen, died after executing a will, stating that Gayatri Devi be the owner of his property.According to an application filed by Gayatri Devi’s Devraj and Lalitya, currently residing in Bangkok, she died in 2009 with a will that declared that they would inherit all her properties. The grandchildren also filed a review petition, challenging a 2010 decision of the HC, which allowed two separate applications for impleadment as heirs of Gayatri Devi.While one plea was filed by Devraj and Lalitya, the other was moved by Gayatri Devi’s stepsons Prithvi Raj Singh and Jai Singh, who were born from Maharaj Sawai Man Singh’s other wife.Her grandchildren contended that only they were entitled to get her share as they were the children of late Jagat Singh, who was her predeceased son, and the only class-I legal heirs under the Hindu Succession Act, 1956.They had also said that Prithvi Raj Singh and Jai Singh were the children of late Sawai Man Singh through another wife and could not be treated as Gayatri Devi’s heirs. Their submissions were countered by Prithvi Raj and Jai Singh, who relied upon the will of Jagat Singh, allegedly excluding his children from succession to his properties.It was submitted that though Devraj and Lalitya might, in the normal circumstances have been the heirs of Gayatri Devi as children of Jagat Singh, they have to be excluded as her successors because they were disinherited by their father.The court, however, set aside its October 19, 2010 order, allowed the review petition, and said: “Devraj and Lalitya Kumari are to be treated as legal representatives of late Gayatri Devi”. It also relied on a Supreme Court judgment, saying the verdict was decisive on the question that stepchildren cannot be equated to children.”… Therefore, the question of other individuals, claiming to succeed to Gayatri Devi’s will, cannot arise. For the foregoing reasons, it is held that the review petition has to succeed. It is allowed. The order dated October 19, 2010, is therefore, set aside. The present applicants — Devraj and Lalitya Kumari — are to be treated as legal representatives of late Gayatri Devi,” the bench stated.The SC, in September 2015, had upheld the verdict of the Delhi HC, allowing transfer of some shares of Gayatri Devi to Devraj and Lalitya Kumari.REVIEW PETITIONThe grandchildren also filed a review petition, challenging a 2010 decision of the HC, which allowed two separate applications for impleadment as heirs of Gayatri Devi.

Gayatri Devi’s grandchildren her legal heirs: Delhi HC

The Delhi High Court has ruled that Rajmata Gayatri Devi’s two grandchildren will be her legal heirs and overruled its earlier decision whereby it had said that the two stepsons of the late Maharani of Jaipur were also entitled to a share in her property.The dispute had arisen following the death of Gayatri Devi as to who would stake claim over her property.Her grandchildren Devraj and Lalitya had earlier moved the high court saying their father Jagat Singh was the son of Gayatri Devi and late Maharaj Sawai Man Singh.Jagat Singh, who was married to Mom Rajawongse Priyanandana Rangsit of Thailand, died leaving a will that Gayatri Devi would be the owner of all his properties.Later, Gayatri Devi, who died on July 29, 2009, left a will saying her grandchildren Devraj and Lalitya, currently residing in Bangkok, would inherit all her properties, they had told the high court.The recent order by Justice S Ravindra Bhat came on a review petition by the two grandchildren challenging a 2010 decision of this court allowing two separate applications for impleadment as heirs of Gayatri Devi.While one plea was filed by Devraj and Lalitya, the other application was moved by Gayatri Devi’s stepsons Prithvi Raj Singh and Jai Singh, who was born from another wife of Maharaj Sawai Man Singh. Her grandchildren contended that only they were entitled to succeed her share as they were the children of late Jagat Singh, who was her predeceased son, and the only class-I legal heirs under the Hindu Succession Act, 1956.They had also said that Prithvi Raj Singh and Jai Singh were the children of late Sawai Man Singh through another wife and could not be treated as Gayatri Devi’s heirs.Their submissions were countered by Prithvi Raj and Jai Singh who relied upon the will of Jagat Singh, allegedly excluding his children from succession to his properties.It was submitted that though Devraj and Lalitya might, in the normal circumstances have been the heirs of Gayatri Devi as children of Jagat Singh, they have to be excluded as her successors because they were disinherited by their father.The court, however, set aside its October 19, 2010 order and allowed the review petition and said “Devraj and Lalitya Kumari are to be treated as legal representatives of late Gayatri Devi”.It also relied on a Supreme Court judgement saying the verdict was decisive on the question that step-children cannot be equated to children.”… Therefore, the question of other individuals, claiming to succeed to Gayatri Devi’s will, cannot arise.

Taking over the reins on Thursday evening, Galhotra was given the baton by his predecessor Ajit Singh. Notably, Galhotra was given a promotion on Thursday and made Director General from ADG.Interestingly, Galhotra also started his career from the same place where Ajit Singh had started – Kota.

He has also served as IG railways and as joint director CBI. As additional director general he was posted as director of the Rajasthan Police Academy and later of the armed battalion. It is from this position that the man had been promoted to the director general rank and made the DGP.About Singh: Known for his simple and straight forward approach towards any situation, Singh had mastery on police works. He has been instrumental in several achievement by state police during his illustrious career spanning three and a half decades. It was on 3rd April 1984 when he started his career as additional SP, Kota. For the next seven months he gained experience of police work as he served as a trainee and was moved further to the PHQ for additional training.

His stance on dacoits and successes in nabbing dacoits of the Chambal area made him a legend with the locals.Later on in the Anti Corruption Bureau, Singh not only took major steps against high-placed officials but also paved way for future ACB officials to easily emulate the same as he left behind a robust infrastructure and work ethics.Officers still swear by Singh’s work for ACB and claim it was his work that gave the bureau its “teeth and claw”.About GalhotraStarted career from Kota Apart from ASP Kota, Galhotra has served as SP Dholpur, Chittor, Bharatpur, Jodhpur and had a stint in the CBI as SP and later as Deputy Inspector General later promoted to the rank of Inspector general wherein he served as IG Jaipur-I range and later as IG Jaipur – II range.
